In 2017, Studio Wayne McGregor launched PEER, a mentoring programme for final year vocational dance students and recent graduates. Six PEER participants had a year-long programme of tailored interactions with Studio Wayne McGregor, including taking part in company class and creative labs, professional development sessions by Studio Wayne McGregor office staff, and mentoring by Company Wayne McGregor dancers, to gain exposure to life as a professional dancer and develop a peer network.

The first year of PEER participants were:

  • Natasha Wort
  • Brittanie Dillon
  • Sanea Singh
  • Richard Pye
  • Rhiannon Williams
  • Daisy Howell

Thanks to generous support from the Idlewild Trust, Studio Wayne McGregor PEER was free of charge to participants.
