Applying for Elmhurst's Associate Programme

Elmhurst's Associate programme offers Saturday or Sunday classes for eight to 11 year olds in Birmingham, Manchester, Sunderland and Plymouth. These classes are designed to give children with a love of dance an opportunity to learn from teachers experienced in the Elmhurst style.

The auditions are open to children with no formal movement teaching as well as those already taking dance lessons**.

The charge for weekend classes is currently £8.50 for Birmingham classes and £7.50 for Manchester, Plymouth and Sunderland classes, and there is an auditon fee of 15, however no talented child will be excluded because of financial constraints; please contact Elmhurst if you have any questions.

** Children already taking dance classes will be accepted onto the Saturday programme only with the consent of their current teacher.
