Step Company fees are priced at £40 per term which can either be paid in three instalments (termly) or in one payment of £120 (full academic year). The fees, which equate to £1.60 per hour, for this significantly subsidised training are made possible due to the generous funding that we receive from the Jack Petchey Foundation.  



Auditions were held for Contemporary and Street Companies in September 2019 while Combine had a taster workshop. The Satellite Company audition took place in October 2019.
