Saturday Associate Programme


London Studio Centre’s Saturday Associate Programme is designed to provide classes to gifted students aged 14-18 who wish to receive a taste of London Studio Centre’s full-time training.

The course gives students the opportunity to enhance their current training to achieve the technical standard and versatility required for entry into a range of vocational colleges alongside other gifted students who share their passion and drive to pursue a performing career.

Each student will have the opportunity to receive individual ongoing advice and potential career development from their panel of teachers. Many Associates have progressed into the full-time school and into other leading vocational training establishments.

The emphasis is on the development of secure fundamental technique in classical ballet, contemporary dance and jazz dance, with the optional addition of voice technique/singing. Those students who do elect to include voice technique/singing will be expected to participate throughout the year.

This course runs on a yearly basis with the provision of progressive lessons for those wishing to stay on for more than one year. It runs on Saturdays for 30 weeks over three terms with presentations and showing opportunities at London Studio Centre’s in-house theatre.

Course entry is by audition only.
