National Youth Dance Company delivers free workshops around the country every year to meet hundreds of wonderful dancers whilst giving a taste of the NYDC experience. Normally, these workshops happen between the months of May and June and take place at dance venues, schools, colleges, community centres and village halls.
This year will be different however, as we work together with the global community to ease the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. NYDC is rescheduling the workshops for September- October 2020 and for now would like to gather your interest, to make sure that you are the first to know once these workshops have been confirmed.
Below is an expression of interest form, and not the application form. All we kindly ask is that you complete your details and mark the town or city that is closest to you or tell us where you would like to have a workshop delivered if it is not listed below. We'd love to hear from you! Dancers from all backgrounds, styles and abilities are welcome. It will not be possible to deliver workshops in all towns and cities of the country but we will hold as many workshops as we possibly can and travel bursaries will also be available.
In due course, a link to the application form will be e-mailed to everyone who signs up below.
Please note, due to the workshops taking place later than planned, the 2020-21 schedule for NYDC will be altered. Our current plan is that the workshops will take place in September and October, with the audition for cohort 9 of NYDC on 1st November at Sadler's Wells. The new company will then first come together for an intensive weekend towards the end of November and we then hope that the rest of the year will run as usual with residencies in December 2020, February and April 2021.
Sending thanks and best wishes to all. Stay healthy, stay creative, stay home.
The NYDC Team :)
