Young Creatives 2017

Young Creatives 2017

On 9 April our six Young Creative choreographers presented their own work at an informal sharing with family, friends and mentors at Rambert, on London’s South Bank.

The six Young Creatives for 2017 were:

Bethan Leadbeater (17) from the East Region

Brogan McKelvey (20) from South West Region

Jemma Stein (19) from Scotland

Katy Wren (17) from South East Region

Mersaidies Sterren (18) from West Midlands

Shania Selvendran (16) from South East Region

These young choreographers took part in two intensive weekends of practical workshops, discussions and performance opportunities to explore their own ideas and practice as a choreographer. They each had a mentor who supported them as they progressed their ideas and developed a dance with their friends in their own school or college. At the end of the project all six dance pieces were presented at an informal sharing to fellow participants, family, mentors and project partners.

Young Creatives is an annual project run in partnership with the Royal Opera House and Rambert. In 2017 we are also supported by Southbank Centre and Sadler’s Wells.
