Performing and creating
We run a range of dance programmes for professional and non-professional artists. They’re designed to help you explore your creativity, develop performance skills and feel good about yourself.
Company of Elders
The Company of Elders is a performance group for non-professional dancers aged 60 and over. Each year, the Company works with a range of professional choreographers to create new dance works that are performed at Sadler’s Wells and beyond.
The Company is made up of 20 dancers who rehearse at Sadler’s Wells on Friday mornings. People are offered a place in the company after taking part in a Company of Elders experience workshop.
The next series of Company of Elders experience workshops will take place in autumn 2021. We’re finalising the workshop dates at the moment. If you’d like us to send you the booking details when they’re confirmed, please email email@example.com
Young Associates is a two-year programme for talented dance artists aged 24 or under. The programme is designed to give them that all-important first step into their career as choreographers.
Every two years, we select four young dance artists to become Young Associates. They get financial support, mentoring and the opportunity to train with leading industry figures, as well as the chance to make and present work at Sadler’s Wells.
Applications for Young Associates are currently open. Recruitment will take place across summer and autumn 2022.
