Help young dancers develop an understanding of the dance world
The Associate programmes are taught by Chantry's resident or guest teachers who are some of the UK's leading dance educators.
Students are required to attend a AUDITION to join the Pre-Associate Programme. Auditions take place during a current Associate sessions.
