Sadler’s Wells Young Associates
We understand how important it is to support artists at the beginning of their careers in dance. Our Young Associates programme helps talented dance artists aged 18-24 and 18-30 for d/Deaf and disabled choreographers, giving them a crucial first step into their careers as choreographers.
Across two years artists are given a professional development course tailored to them, as well as the opportunity to present their work as part of our artistic programme.
