How do I apply?

You need to fill in the form below and Sharon, who runs the DDI and DDE course will be in touch to discuss your training course.

Do I qualify to begin the course?

Entry onto the teacher training course is subject to an audition and meeting the following prerequisites:

  • You must be 17 years of age or older.
  • A background training in ISTD is desirable, however if a different body has been studied such as BBO, RADA or IDTA, then the entry audition will help ascertain your suitability to start the course.

What do I need to prepare for my audition?

To audition for the teacher training programme at D&B School of Performing Arts, applicants will need to prepare a dance, specific to the subject they wish to enrol for – Tap, Ballet or Modern (no longer than 2mins). They would then be interviewed by the tutor to assess their suitability to take on the training. All applicants will hear within one week whether they have been offered a place or declined entry.

When can I audition?

Auditions are held in September each year, although private auditions can be arranged throughout the year.
