Supporting young dancers to train closer to home

Until now young Brighton-based dancers training at London conservatoires as part of the Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) schemes have had to travel to London for mid-week training sessions – no mean feat when you’ve already done a day’s work at school! Now, thanks to a pilot partnership between South East Dance, Trinity Laban and The Place, professional support and training for these 14-18 year olds is available much closer to home in central Brighton.

Under the guidance of professional dancer Greig Cooke, participants receive training in techniques that complement their own journey as developing dancers, as well as advice on entering conservatoires.

“It’s important for these young dancers to have the opportunity for continuity and focus, to develop them as artists and as human beings,” says Greig. “By getting to know them and their own personal journey, I can support them in their next step.”

South East Dance hopes that once the pilot is completed, in discussion with The Place and Trinity Laban this important offer for developing young dancers will continue.
