How to Join

National Youth Dance Company

The National Youth Dance Company (NYDC) are about to start their search for the brightest young talent from across the country.

The NYDC is seeking dancers who are passionate about dance, who come from diverse backgrounds with experience in any dance style, and who simply love to perform.

As a member of NYDC you will get to work with 2013 Guest Artistic Director Jasmin Vardimon, perform in world class venues, learn different dance styles, take part in intensive rehearsal residencies, collaborate with professional choreographers and companies and find out about career pathways and different opportunities.

To join NYDC the first step is to register for a NYDC Experience Workshop.
NYDC Experience Workshops include a technique class, creative workshop and information on dance training, careers and NYDC. Selected dancers will be invited to attend a second workshop. The days are open to dancers aged 16-18 from diverse backgrounds, with experience in any dance style. There is no cost for the days, but places must be pre-booked through Sadler’s Wells.

If you are a young person aged 16-18 years and think this is the place for you, please contact or call 020 7863 8139.
Bursaries are available to cover NYDC membership.
