NGDance is a youth training program, designed and delivered by dance professionals, Sophie Duncan and Joshua Ecob. Based in the heart of Nottingham City Centre, the program is designed for young dancers seeking a professional dance experience, focusing on Ballet, Contemporary Dance and Choreography. With over 15 years collective performance and choreographic experience in the UK and worldwide, Sophie and Joshua push students to their artistic and technical potential. 


We offer intensive programs throughout the year over 1, 3 or 5 days. Every program focuses on 3 main subjects: ballet, contemporary dance and choreography. Within these topics, the courses also cover pas de deux, partnering, improvisation and contract improvisation, contemporary and classical repertoire, basic body conditioning, floor work, characterisation and original choreography. All of this, plus the chance to ask questions and learn directly from professional artists, currently creating and performing work in the UK and worldwide. 

NGDance strives to offer programs delivered only by dance artists working in the performance industry, ensuring a high level of training that is off-syllabus, current and exciting, as well as challenging. The main aim is to demystify the industry, for students and parents, igniting the passion for the next generation of dancers.
