Dancers’ Development Experience

NYB’s Dancers’ Development Experiences are designed to support and nurture the talented young dancers of the future.  Participants have the chance to work together as a company to hone their technical skills, develop their artistry and cultivate their creativity. These young people develop their skills as company dancers, whilst experiencing first-hand the process of creating a new ballet inspired by NYB repertoire with a professional choreographer.

In 2023 we are excited to deliver our Dancers’ Development Experience workshops in different locations across the country, bringing National Youth Ballet activities to new participants. Local dancers will work together as a company, exploring ballet technique, drama and creativity.  This work will be supported by Moving Minds, an activity designed to develop and improve young dancers’ confidence. There will be an opportunity to perform to friends and family at the end of each Dancers’ Development Experience.
