Young Associates: Behind the scenes

What does it take to create a new dance work for the Sadler’s Wells stage?

We followed four talented young choreographers – Wilhelmina Ojanen, Anthony Matsena, Ruby Portus and Christopher Thomas – to find out.

The Sadler’s Wells Young Associates programme supports exceptional young dance makers aged 18 – 24, providing a crucial first step into their career as choreographers. The artists receive a tailored programme of professional development and support over two years, including the opportunity to present their work as part of the Sadler’s Wells artistic programme.
