Dance taster sessions in Edinburgh

Dance taster sessions in Edinburgh

 

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Junior Conservatoire is launching two new dance programmes for Modern Ballet and Contemporary Dance, in partnership with Dance Base in Edinburgh, starting this September.

To celebrate the start of this initiative, we are offering free taster workshops for young dancers aged 8–17 to find out more about the Junior Conservatoire.

The taster workshops will take place on 26 May and 2 June at Dance Base in Edinburgh. These taster workshops are perfect for anyone who wishes to audition for the Junior Conservatoire, with auditions scheduled to take place in June.

For ballet, no previous dance experience is necessary and we look for students who show potential and an aptitude for rhythm, movement and co-ordination. If you are auditioning for Contemporary Dance, a technical background is not essential but some grounding in either contemporary, ballet, jazz, Highland or another dance form is helpful.
