Performing and creating
Having the opportunity to be creative and perform can be transformative. It can help develop a range of skills, lower stress and build confidence.
We run a range of dance programmes for professional and non-professional artists. They’re designed to help you explore your creativity, develop performance skills and feel good about yourself.
Our Mighty Groove
Young people living or studying in east London, who will be aged 16 – 21 on 31 August 2023, are invited to take part in workshops starting this summer, delivered by Vicki Igbokwe’s company Uchenna Dance. Some workshop participants will be invited to join the professional dancers on stage when Our Mighty Groove opens at Sadler’s Wells East, in Stratford in November 2023.
Company of Elders
The Company of Elders is a performance group for non-professional dancers aged 60 and over. Each year, the Company works with a range of professional choreographers to create new dance works that are performed at Sadler’s Wells and beyond.
The Company is made up of 20 dancers who rehearse at Sadler’s Wells on Friday mornings. People are offered a place in the company after taking part in a Company of Elders experience workshop.
The next series of Company of Elders experience workshops will take place in autumn 2021. We’re finalising the workshop dates at the moment. If you’d like us to send you the booking details when they’re confirmed, please email email@example.com
Young Associates is a two-year programme for talented dance artists aged 24 or under. The programme is designed to give them that all-important first step into their career as choreographers.
Every two years, we select four young dance artists to become Young Associates. They get financial support, mentoring and the opportunity to train with leading industry figures, as well as the chance to make and present work at Sadler’s Wells.
Applications for 2023/24 Young Associates are now closed, applications will re-open in Summer 2024.
