The Graduate Company is an offshoot of CYDC which was established in 2007, it involves students who have begun higher education training or are currently in work. Its aim is to nurture their talents, back at home in Wales as well as inspire the younger members of the company. They rehearse and create a piece in three days with a professional choreographer, as part of the Spring Project.
