The Morea Associate Programme is the first of its kind from a UK's College in Ireland, providing with a wide variety of valuable learning experiences to its members and we are delighted to bring this to Ireland from September 2020.

The Morea Associate Programme is designed for a selected number of students who are already receiving strong foundations from their dance schools.


The Morea Associate Programme in Ireland will have two groups: Junior Associates and Senior Associates.


Running on a monthly basis, all Irish Associates will benefit from working with the Morea's top-class faculty (from the UK), and we aim to contribute to the associates' development as a dancer and to nurture their evolution to become a professional artist.


Senior Irish Associates will have the opportunity to perform in front of relevant industry people at the College's 2021 Summer Showcase in Cheltenham, UK. 


An essential point to consider is that members of the associate programme will require permission from their current dance school. We respect the work their teachers have already invested in them, and we hope to count with their full support for their students to join us.

 The Morea Associate Programme offers 


  • Exclusive personal attention, with limited spaces available for each division.

  • 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.

  • Fantastic days of training, including the performances as guest artists at the Morea Performing Arts's End of Year Show (Senior Division only) – our Associate's name and their dance school will be named in the official programme.
