An award-winning national dance organisation is looking for children and young people to join in the Project Y Performance Course 2020.

YDance (Scottish Youth Dance) is seeking talented dancers aged 16 to 25 for the dance performance training programme which offers the experience of creating, rehearsing and performing as part of a touring contemporary dance company.

For four weeks this coming summer dancers will work with four choreographers to create and rehearse four new dance works before performing in venues across Scotland in the annual Project Y Tour.

The four choreographers confirmed to work with the young dancers this year are Anna Kenrick, Sandrine Monin, Emma Jayne Park and Jessie Roberts-Smith.

Anna Kenrick is the Artistic Director of YDance. She said: “Working with the Project Y dancers is a highlight of my year. It’s a real pleasure working with such talented, motivated and unique dancers who bring such a richness to the work we create. It’s always such an exciting process where everyone gets the chance to shine and show their incredible skills!”

The Project Y Performance Course 2020 will run for four weeks starting on Monday 6th July. The first three weeks will be based in Glasgow and during the fourth week the company will tour and perform in venues across Scotland.

Dancers must be aged between 16 and 25 on the first day of the course and be able to commit to all rehearsal and performance dates. Applications are now open, and anyone interested in applying should visit www.ydance.org for more information. Applications close on Sunday 1st March 2020.

The Project Y Performance Course is supported by the Leverhulme Trust.
