Youth Dance England’s national youth dance festival will be taking place in Leeds this July! Over 4 days, the festival will give some of the best youth dance groups in the UK the opportunity to perform in high-profile venues across the city at the only event of its kind.
In May 2012 four hundred artists led by the Quay Brothers created OverWorlds & UnderWorlds, a three-day event in Leeds that was directly experienced by 20,000 people. The Worlds is a new companion piece to OverWorlds and UnderWorlds, designed in response to the live event as a creative digital experience for online audiences.

We create opportunities for emerging and established artists and practitioners to research, create and present new contemporary work on the small scale, and in communities, developing their skills, expertise and networks.
We create opportunities for people to experience dance by working with partners local authorities and the arts, in health and in sport, building a region-wide infrastructure for dance development.
