This programme is a unique opportunity to work alongside other like-minded, passionate and highly motivated students and to experience professional level masterclasses with visiting industry specialists and established Urdang faculty, all within a working college environment.
Whilst open to everyone, Urdang Associates is a selective course, and only a limited number of places are made available each year to the most talented applicants who show true potential to have a career in theatre.
Urdang Associates is developed exclusively for the next generation of musical theatre and dance performers. It is an opportunity for each year group of Associates to be trained by some of the best in the business so that each Associate can stellify into the best version of themselves as a performer.
