Tees Valley’s Youth Dance Company has landed, giving dancers aged 14 – 19 the opportunity to perform and get access to training from North-East based choreographer Debbie Waistell. Offering talented young people from all backgrounds a springboard for dance development and a pathway onto further training opportunities.

The focus of youth dance work is to develop dance performance skills and improve all-round creative and technical ability. With particular focus on contemporary dance technique the company will be working to perform their choreographed pieces in a variety of settings.

The selected dancers will participate in a three day choreographic intensive as well as 16 further sessions with Debbie between November 2012 and March 2013.
