Youth Dance Workshops
Sessions are available on Saturday afternoons with occasional extra rehearsals scheduled for other evenings and / or Sundays when necessary. Every group has the opportunity to perform at least twice a year, in a low key Christmas Showcase at a local venue and an ‘End of Year’ Showcase in July at the Bonington Theatre. There will be other performance opportunities through Inspire Youth Arts and County Youth Dance Platforms.
Youth Dance groups have performed at the Evolution Dance Festival, Inspire Youth Arts Showcases, Episodes (U Dance), Unite the Scene and Dance: Make your Move.
The Inter/Senior Youth Dance group was selected to perform at the Nottinghamshire County Youth Dance Platform, Episodes 2018 at Lakeside Arts Theatre and in the past (2010) was selected by Dance 4 to go to Berlin on a Youth Dance exchange.
Saturday Youth Dance
These workshops develop Contemporary Dance technique and choreography skills with a focus on the creative processes. They incorporate other styles e.g. Hip Hop, Stage, Jazz, Capoeira as and when appropriate. These groups have had opportunities to perform as part of the National U Dance framework and County Youth Arts projects. At the moment we have one dance group - Inter/Senior Dance group (Please see Timetable for details) but we are looking to build our numbers over 2021.
