The first step to becoming an NYDC dancer is to register for a National Youth Dance Company Experience Workshop. The workshops are open to dancers aged 16–18* from diverse backgrounds, with experience in any dance style. There is no cost for the workshops but places must be pre-booked through Sadler’s Wells. Selected dancers will then be invited to attend a final audition at Sadler’s Wells, London on Sunday 26 July.
The workshop day includes a technique class, creative workshop and information on dance training, careers and being part of NYDC. From these workshops selected dancers will be invited to attend a final selection day at Sadler’s Wells.
NYDC offers dancers the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the professional dance industry at a critical moment in their development before they make the commitment to enter full-time training or choose dance as a career.
