Joining the company



Chrysalis London provides graduate dancer’s aged 18-26 with the skills, experience and mature technique required for employment within the dance industry. A free-to-join one-year part time programme with the overarching goal of bridging the gap between training and professional life, we provide graduates with a greater probability of a long-term career in the arts, equipping our members with the skills and experience necessary to gain full-time dance employment after their time with us.

Since our founding in 2014, Chrysalis has worked with 31 graduate dancers, 84% of which are now employed in the dance industry. Our alumni now dance with the likes of Matthew Bourne, National Dance Company Wales, Vienna Festival Ballet, James Wilton Dance, Alexander Whitley and Company Chameleon.

"There is nothing else in London like this. For graduates it helps them in that really scary period of coming out of college into the dance industry. It guides you, continues your training, which I think a lot of graduates don’t keep up with. And it also keeps you focused and pushes you out of that college comfort zone which everyone is stuck in. It's incredible training and choreography to be involved in, you’re always working towards something whether it’s just pushing yourself or rehearsing for a performance."
