CAPA College graduate Niall Egan secures apprenticeship with Richard Alston Dance Company

As graduates from one of the leading Arts education providers in the North of England, students from CAPA College (Creative and Performing Arts College) in Wakefield have gone on to study at some of the most prestigious Arts conservatoires in the UK and beyond.  

CAPA College is in the top 1% for student progress in the country with 100% of students achieving the grades they require to successfully progress to their first choice higher education destination. In recent years graduates have secured places at ArtsEd, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Mountview, the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp and the Institute of the Arts Barcelona. 

After graduating from CAPA College in 2016, Niall Egan chose to develop his skills and experience with a BA Hons in Contemporary Dance at the London Contemporary Dance School. 

‘Every lesson at CAPA College taught me something different about myself,’ Niall says, ‘whether it was self-determination, exploration of my creativity or understanding how important it is to be surrounded by loving support when going through difficult times. CAPA College gave me the base I needed to start building a successful career in Dance and choreography.’ 

Since leaving CAPA College Niall has taken part in a number of high-profile productions, worked alongside the Batsheva Dance Company, choreographed his own work for the Robin Howard Dance Theatre and modelled for the London Queer Fashion Show. 

Now Niall will put his early training at CAPA College to good use as he commences an apprenticeship at the highly-acclaimed Richard Alston Dance Company (RADC). Having worked with Richard Alston on an improvised version Rainbow Ripples during his degree studies, Niall will take up the one-year apprenticeship with the celebrated choreographer later this year before embarking on a UK and US tour in 2020. 

‘I am extremely excited and look forward to working with Richard Alston Dance Company as the apprentice for the company’s final year,’ Niall told us. ‘I will be performing on tour around the UK and USA and will also be completing my Masters degree while I am with the company.’ 

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Niall all the best with his apprenticeship. We are so very proud and we can’t wait to see you perform with RADC soon!
