Mercury Young Company: Dancers
Delivered by Dance Network Association (dna)

Mercury Young Company (MYC) Dancers will ground young people aged 10 - 15 years in contemporary dance technique, explore movement and creativity and build on choreographic skills, as well as developing fitness and flexibility, building confidence and offering the chance to make new friends in a safe, fun and supportive environment.


There will also be opportunities to take part in regular workshops and intensive sessions with guest artists and professional companies and to co-create performance pieces. You will have the opportunity to perform locally, regionally and nationally.
