Unsuccessful candidates may audition in future years and are welcome to join the Company as Associate Members. To retain dancing membership you must attend dance classes on a regular basis at a recognised dance school or college.

Associate Membership – is open to anyone interested in the Company who supports its aims. Associates are able to take part in all non-dancing activities of the Company.  Associate members may include past dancing members, parents, other relatives and friends of dancers, dance students too young to join the Company and those who wish to support the company. They are entitled to the same discounts and priority booking as dancing members.  We are most grateful to our Associate Members for the support they give to the Company.  Special rates are available for partners or husband and wife membership.
