We support young people to get into dance, helping develop skills and confidence, and providing opportunities to perform and collaborate.
Clare Wood manages Dancefest's youth dance programme. Contact Clare if you'd like any information about youth dance in the region.
Previous members of our youth companies have gone on to train at Trinity Laban and Northern School of Contemporary Dance and are now working as professional dancers and choreographers. See Shelley Haden's story here.
DanceXchange’s Centre for Advanced Dance Training is designed to nurture and support young dancers aged 11-18 with exceptional talent in dance.
