Youth Leaders has established itself as a unique professional development programme for leaders working in the youth dance field. The programme supports leaders who, due to their location, often work in isolation from one another and from the professional dance field.

Youth Leaders are welcomed into the company and our daily practice. This includes taking company class, learning and devising repertoire and covering company dancers’ roles when necessary. This offers new skills for developing their own arts practice which they can then draw on when working with their own young dancers. Through this process, the leaders also made vital contact with other artists working in their field, creating a supportive network of youth dance leaders throughout the country.

Previous Youth Leaders’ organisations include:

Tri.Art Theatre School and Dance Academy

Wilshire Dancing

Salisbury Youth Dance Company

Take Art, Somerset

Activate Dorset

FuZe8 Youth Dance Company

Forest Forge Youth Dance Company

Swindon Dance

Swerve Dance Company

DAZL Leeds


Lecture Demonstrations

Company dancers perform excerpts from the current programme which are introduced and discussed by the lead artists. This is followed by a Q+A session with the whole company.
