The 40 strong company, aged 15-22, will be working with 2016-17 Guest Artistic Director, Damien Jalet, creating their brand new work Tarantiseismic. As part of the Get Creative Weekend celebrating art and creativity across Britain, they will be opening their doors for young people to get involved in their free Experience Workshop.

If you are aged 14-19 (or up to age 24 if deaf or disabled) you are warmly invited to join the company for a morning of dance including a workshop, opportunity to watch NYDC dancers in rehearsal and to find out more about the company. Parents/Carers/Guardians will be invited to watch the NYDC rehearsal and discussion with the dancers from 11:30-12:30.

The workshop is open to young people from all dance backgrounds and abilities with experience in any dance style. There is no cost to attend the workshop but places must be pre-booked. Places can be booked for individual dancers or groups. Please note, this is not an audition for NYDC but just a chance to find out more about the company.
