Youth Dance Coventry is an established Contemporary Dance Company that is designed specifically for young people aged between12-18. It particularly supports those who are interested or are studying Dance at GCSE or A Level.
We provide excellent training in contemporary dance technique.
Skilled dance practitioners deliver high quality classes that enable dancers to develop their strength, stamina and flexibility; dancers are given the skills necessary to shape their movement and learn how to create original dance material. We are always on the look out for interesting opportunities to perform and arrange regular theatre visits and trips.
Some of our former YDC members have gone on to undertake professional dance training and now teach and perform in their own right.
