February-March - create your dance (it can be a solo, duet or group). Your advisor/mentor will be available to help
Wedesday 26 March - performance as part of Circuit (Herefordshire Youth Dance Performance) and feedback from dance professionals.
March-July - continue to develop your dance
July - performance as part of Big Dance Week (5-13 July) in Worcester

“Having your own choreography performed on stage in prestigious theatres is an amazing feeling that normally youth dancers do not experience. Creates is a brilliant project, is a lot of fun, and I would fully encourage people to have a go.”
