The Hertfordshire Advanced Training Scheme is a unique intensive dance training course designed to identify and assist, young dancers with exceptional potential in dance, creativity and performance skills to prepare, and progress them into full-time professional dance training, or to apply for university. Dancers are trained by professional dance artist, and guest teachers, with extensive experience in the dance industry.


The Hertfordshire Advanced Training Scheme focuses on 5 core areas: 

Developing dance technique, Creativity and choreography, Performance skills and opportunities, Dancers’ health and wellbeing.


As well as weekly classes, dancers will take part in cultural activities such as theatre and gallery trips, workshops and volunteering opportunities. The curriculum has been devised to give dancers a strong basic grounding in technical and creative skills in contemporary dance, as well as an introduction to the wider dance profession. 


At the end of the scheme dancers will be signposted to other dance opportunities in the region and beyond.


The Hertfordshire Advanced Training Scheme is open to any young person aged between 12-17 years old. Any young person can apply regardless of whether they have had any previous dance experience.
