Part of Dancefest’s youth dance programme, Accelerate is an evening of work created and performed by talented dancers from West Midlands-based youth dance companies.
The companies create polished, powerful and innovative performances, so for audiences it's a chance to see high quality dance and professional dance artists of the future.
It's also an opportunity for dancers to watch and be inspired by each other in a non competitive, supportive environment, and for people studying dance at school or college to aspire to achieve more.
Many previous Accelerate performers have gone on to train at degree level and now work as professional dancers and choreographers.
Dancefest works with dancers of all ages across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, through its weekly classes, performance companies and work in education and community settings.
