YOUTH DANCE

The Dance Network Association has a strong passion for supporting the growth of dance provision in youth settings. We provide opportunities for schools to immerse themselves into dance with our Bespoke Programmes and 1 Day, 1 Dance, 1000 Dancers project (please see the menu under 'Dance with us' for more information). However, we also encourage dance within the community and bringing further opportunities to the youth of Essex. See below for what we provide and how to get involved!

We have two Contemporary dance and Performance Programmes for Young People:
Dance Station & Young Professionals
Working in partnership with Colchester Sixth Form Performing Arts and Dance team.  

Dance Station (10 - 16 years)

We welcome applications from young people with a disability, up to 19 years old.
