Yorkshire Dance Youth

In August 2013, we were absolutely delighted to receive £9,000 of new funding for our two Youth Dance companies from Jimbo’s fund. The funding allows us to continue working with both groups from the Seacroft and Richmond Hill areas of Leeds, for another year.

Our two companies of young dancers (aged 8-12 and 13-19) have been enjoying weekly sessions with a range of artists and have been involved in numerous prestigious performances on the West Yorkshire Playhouse Stage, as part of the Olympic Torch relay in Temple Newsam and as part of U.Dance National Youth Dance Festival 2013.

All this hard work has paid off and two of the members have been selected to join the Centre for Advanced Training at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
