The Morea Associate Programme is an international scheme of activities running in different locations including Cheltenham (England), Scotland, Greece and we are delighted to start the Irish Associate Programme this September 2020.

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.

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

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

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

Very importantly, members of the associate programme will need 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.

  • 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.
