Launched in 2012, our youth dance company ENBYouthCo has become one of the UK’s leading companies in the youth dance sector. Its unique focus on both ballet and contemporary reflects the varied and diverse styles seen in English National Ballet’s repertoire, and offers young dancers aged 14-19 the opportunity to connect and train with a world-class ballet company.
Working with a wide range of professional artists, and performing at a number of events and locations across London throughout each year, ENBYouthCo promotes innovation, personal creativity and commitment, while focusing on the development of each dancer’s potential.
