Hi,

 

I wanted to share some exciting news with you about a new dance centre opening in Bradford city centre. 

 

The Bradford Dance Centre will open its doors to the public in August 2015 and will be the only dedicated space for dance within the city centre. The centre will have three professional dance studios and will offer a range of classes and courses for children, young people and adults,

 

In September, we are offering a one-year, part-time, foundation course in professional contemporary dance, for adults  (aged 18+). Students study for 17.5 hours per week over two evenings and all day Saturday, which means the course can easily be combined with work or additional study. This is an intensive, progressive, practical training programme offering 11 practical classes per week (including 6 contemporary technique classes and 2 ballet technique classes). Students can undertake nationally recognised qualifications from a level 1 certificate, up to a level 4 diploma (which is the equivalent of the first year of an undergraduate degree).

 

As far as we know, this is the only part time professional programme for adults available in the UK, outside London. 

 

There are no formal entry requirements and no audition! Applicants will be selected based on their desire and motivation to undertake the course, demonstrated on their application form. Students will be allocated to groups according to their level of ability, so we accept students with a range of experience and abilities, although it is not recommended for complete beginners.

 

If you are serious about your dance training, but feel you might not meet the traditional criteria of a vocational school, this course will be perfect for you.  Please see website on signature below for further details and an application form.

 

Bradford Dance Centre is a not-for-profit social enterprise and a UK registered training provider.

 

Many thanks, Bradford Dance Centre

Thank you Terpsichore, Bradford deserves a place like this. I look forward to reading your blog. We also plan to run some open classes there too, so hopefully I might see you in class one day!

Many thanks for your message Kate. We haven't had much investment in dance in Bradford, so this is a massive achievement for us!
