In the previous three academic years we have offered an exciting opportunity for one young person to become the dance apprentice for Attik Dance as a part of the Community Arts Apprenticeship Scheme in partnership with City College Plymouth.

The main role for the Attik Apprentice involved assisting the company’s artists in the planning, delivery and administration of their work in education, with our youth dance companies, with our work with youth services and with the development of our touring shows. The young person also supported our research in all areas of this work.

As part of this programme, the Apprentice also fulfilled the coursework for the Community Arts Apprentice Award, which was supported by Attik Dance and City College Plymouth

Our apprentices have graduated to train at prestigious conservatoires, Trinity Laban and Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and also Wimbledon College of Art.
