The Morea Associate Programe has been designed for a small selected number of talented students who are already receiving strong foundations from their dance schools.

Associates benefit from working with our top-class faculty, and we aim to contribute to their development as a dancer and to nurture their evolution to become a professional artist.

Associates benefit from specialised days of work in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Contemporary, Improvisation, Virtuosity, Body Conditioning, Singing, Tap and Folk/Latin rhythms. There is also the opportunity to perform as guest artists in the College’s Summer Showcase (conditions apply) (senior division only-Ireland-).

Our international Associate Programme runs in different locations including CHELTENHAM, SCOTLAND and DUBLIN.

 The Morea Associate Programme offers 


  • Exclusive personal attention, with limited spaces available.

  • The experience of College level professional training.

  • Classes with members of the Morea faculty who have extensive experience training successful professional artists.

  • Specialist days of training, focusing on both technical and artistic elements.
