The Junior Associate course of study includes ballet, body conditioning, character and creative movement.
During the year students have the opportunity to learn some of Scottish Ballet's repertoire taught by Company dancers. They can also experience the work of other departments involved in each production.
Although no previous dance experience is necessary, potential students need to show an aptitude for movement, co-ordination, a sense of rhythm and lots of personality together with the physical aptitude to safely undertake rigorous training without risking injury.
Weekly classes for students living within travelling distance of Glasgow are held on Tuesdays from 6pm to 8pm (for P6 students), Wednesdays from 6pm to 7.30pm (for P5 students) and on Thursdays from 6pm to 8pm (for P7 students).
Sunday classes for students who are unable to travel to Glasgow on a weekly basis are run approximately once a month during term time from 10am to 3pm.
Students entering P5, P6 or P7 in September 2019 will be eligible to apply for the 2019/20 session. Auditions are held annually in May every year.
