Jean Shannly School of Dance


I am delighted to announce that Caroline Bakam has become the latest pupil to be accepted into the Scottish Ballet Junior Associates programme.


The Junior Associates course of study includes ballet, body conditioning, character and creative movement. During the year students have the opportunity to learn some of Scottish Ballet's repertoire taught by Company dancers. They can also experience the work of other departments involved in each production.

Entry Criteria

Entry is by annual audition only. Potential students need to show an aptitude for movement, co-ordination, a sense of rhythm and lots of personality together with an appropriate physique.
