Love to dance? Then audition for Scottish Ballet’s Associate Programme.

The Associate Programme provides classically based training for boys and girls from Primary 5 to Secondary 5. Our aim is to develop confident, dedicated and motivated dancers by supplementing the training provided by local dance teachers.

There are three points of entry:

Junior AssociatesP5, P6 & P7
Mid AssociatesS1 & S2
Senior AssociatesS3, S4 & S5

Please note: Students should only apply for the appropriate level e.g. a student entering S3 in September is not eligible to apply for Mid Associates.

Entry to the programme is by annual audition only.

Scottish Ballet is very grateful to the following funders who allow us to provide financial assistance to young people participating in the Associate's Programme:

CMS Charitable Trust, Castansa Charitable Trust, Jack Burns Scottish Ballet Associates Foundation (winter season support), John Mather Charitable Trust, the Wendy Hamilton Scholarship Fund and one anonymous patron.
