Spokeswoman Kim Adsett said: "When in the company, dancers develop their choreographic and performance skills and get to work with top professionals.

"They develop their contemporary dance technique, work with professional choreographers and take part in high-profile performances, including performing at county and regional showcases in the southeast.

"By joining the company, dancers get an experience similar to that of a professional group.

"They also see what it's like to be involved in the dance industry through high-quality performances and regular training."

Kim added: "The company has been running since 2003 and has a weekly class at the University of Chichester during term-time.

"The style of dance is primarily contemporary, although other styles are also used. It's open to both girls and boys."
