UKP-Arts Guide to Performing Arts
Life as a professional dancer is not for the faint-hearted; it demands very hard work, determination, physical aptitude and, of course, talent! Dance training tends to start at an early age, although it is difficult to be precise as to when that might be. Students interested in ballet should begin training at around age 8 or 9 and other dance forms allow for a later start. One thing is certain, however: dance training requires every ounce of dedication, focus and energy the dance student can muster but rewards are there for those who earn them.

Within this section of UKP-Arts, you can find out about different dance courses and qualifications available depending on how old you are and at what stage of your training you may be at. There is also information on auditions and funding as well as career profiles.
