Where we are based:

Nottingham – Covering East Midlands region (Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire)

Dance4’s Centre for Advanced Training is based at the International Centre for Choreography (iC4C) in central Nottingham. iC4C is an exemplar creative facility from which Dance4 invests in artists’ practice and delivers specialist support and space for the research, production and distribution of new choreographic work.

Age Range:

For young people aged between 11–18 years

Dance4’s Centre for Advanced Training is a fully inclusive programme and support is available for young people with disabilities or those who may have additional access needs.

Core Curriculum:

Classes are held on Saturdays during term time and intensive projects are held in school holidays. Students also have the opportunity to access a mid-week training session in one of the established local youth dance companies that we support. Students regularly work with some of the UK’s most inspiring dance professionals, as well as collaborating with international dance artists to explore various classical and contemporary techniques alongside choreography and creative processes.
