Associate programme

Love to dance? Then audition for Scottish Ballet’s Associate Programme.

Applications for 2024-2025 are now open!


Auditions will take place at Scottish Ballet’s studios in Glasgow – 11/12 May (Juniors), 26 May (Mids) and 25 May (Seniors).
Closing dates for applications – 29 April (Juniors) and 6th May (Mids/Seniors).

To apply, visit the Junior, Mid or Senior Associate page below and click on the button link.

The Associate Programme provides classically based training for students from Primary 5 to Secondary 5. Our aim is to develop confident, dedicated and motivated dancers by supplementing the training provided by local dance teachers.

There are three points of entry:

Junior Associates – P5, P6 & P7
Mid Associates – S1 & S2
Senior Associates – S3, S4 & S5

Please note: Students should only apply for the appropriate level e.g. a student entering S3 in August is not eligible to apply for Mid Associates.

Entry to the programme is by annual audition only.

Scottish Ballet is very grateful to the following funders who allow us to provide financial assistance to young people participating in the Associate’s Programme; Jack Burns Scottish Ballet Associates Foundation (winter season support), John Mather Charitable Trust, the Wendy Hamilton Scholarship Fund and one anonymous patron.
