Associate Programmes are an excellent way to enhance your current training programme. They are designed to offer additional tuition for students who aspire to a career in dance. Attending regular classes in a professional studio setting helps provide an introduction to an alternative way of working. Some associate programmes even offer the opportunity to perform alongside their resident companies. I’m passionate about helping young dancers develop a strong portfolio that will propel them into the dance world. In todays society, we are often seeing dancers parents becoming dancers PA’s! Parents devote their time finding new opportunities such as training programmes, summer intensives and associate programmes. It can seem quite daunting having application papers to complete with certain photographs, all with specific requirements not only with positions, but with the dancer’s attire. Some request bare feet, others shoes and socks, certain leotard fits and pointe shoes, no pointe shoes! Then to confuse things further... the ballet positions are listed in French! With a strong classical background and years of experience preparing hundreds of Dancers’ portfolios, I try to take the stress out of applications. Being classically trained myself, placing and correcting the students while on shoot isn't a problem. The photoshoot experience is devoted to the individual dancer and discovering their strengths. We take time finding their longest leg, highest arch and flattest turnout. We'll work together to craft their most technically accurate shots, highlighting their personality and artistry. Please note: This package covers one application. Additional applications requiring additional images can be bolted onto the shoot with an additional charge of £15 per image required.
