We’re excited to get started on our plans for our new Youth Theatre and will be showcasing & delivering workshops on Sunday 28th January 2024, at Left Bank, Leeds, as part of our FREE Open Day!

Our Youth Theatre will be an opportunity for us to share the skills & knowledge we’ve gained over the last 19 years developing Folk & Hip Hop dance theatre and we also plan to produce new work created by, and featuring, young artists. We would love to hear from any young dancers aged 7 – 25 who would be interested in developing their skills with a view to performing.

The Open Day on 28th January will be a fun & informal introduction to our work with showcases & workshops delivered by some of our talented company artists.

This event FREE to attend and suitable for all ages so bring the family to watch and join in the fun! (there is a fantastic cafe at Left Bank!)

We would also love to meet dance leaders and arts organisations from across the region with a view to building partnerships for future projects.

Tutors will be:

Chris ‘BankC’ Banks – Breakin’
Marie ‘Petit Filou’ Mathias – Breakin’
Bobak Champion – Acro & Sword
Damien Barber – Acro & Sword
