Yorke Dance Project is a dynamic contemporary ballet company under the artistic direction of Yolande Yorke-Edgell. Eight compellingly athletic performers at the peak of their physical powers form a company that is rooted in tradition yet blasts its way into the future; it devises and delivers a range of projects that identify, nurture and launch new young talent; and offers dynamic, wrap-around activities to engage, inform and stimulate the public.
Internationally-renowned dancer and choreographer, Yolande Yorke-Edgell, brings to her repertory company a legacy that combines the roots of American contemporary dance with the first wave of contemporary dance in Britain. Her work with such luminaries as Bella Lewitzky, Richard Alston and Robert Cohan grounds the company in a deep, physical understanding of where great contemporary dance comes from while inspiring Yorke Dance Project to strive forward and discover where dance can take us.
