Young Dancers Academy Associate Programme encourages the development of young talented students between the ages of 8 – 16 in pre-vocational and vocational classical ballet training. Our associate course is led by Kerry Williams, YDA's Executive Director.


The courses have been developed to increase students individual current training together with other aspiring children while introducing them to our Programme of Study taught by highly qualified and experienced teachers.


These classes include Body Conditioning, Classical Ballet, Character and Repertoire lessons. All classes are accompanied with live music by our talented pianists.


We expect the students continue to study with their regular dance schools in addition to our Associate classes.
