Step into Dance

Step Companies

We offer young people the chance to train in a professional dance environment under the direction of expert teachers through our Step Companies: Contemporary, Inclusive, Jazz and Street. All rehearse on Sundays during term time at the Royal Academy of Dance.


Company members must be committed to attending their weekly rehearsals and to developing their dance skills. Progress is reviewed each term by Company Leaders and Assistants so that dancers can improve for the year ahead.


Alongside their weekly training, Company dancers have the opportunity to participate in week-long residencies and take part in performance opportunities throughout the year.
