ATELIER Genres & Vision


Our Ateliers are trained equally in both Classical and Contemporary Dance alongside Lyrical, Jazz & Neo in order to immerse our students fully in our art form. This training programme will grow with you by developing our Ateliers into becoming the fully rounded artists our industry requires.

This will in turn offer our Atelier artists more job opportunities in the future when entering the industry moving forward.


Our smaller class numbers allow our Ateliers the opportunity to be seen, guided and mentored every day, in every class by our tutors. They will receive our Director and Faculty's full attention, guidance and care which will enable their potential to be fully nurtured and developed.


Becoming an AGA Atelier will offer you the chance to train each day with a highly respected school, with a proven training record of student success. You will be coached and mentored on a daily basis which will enable you to confidently venture out into the professional dance industry when you are ready.
