Cumbria Youth Dance Company

Are you a young person living in Cumbria with a passion for dance?

Do you want the opportunity to work with professional choreographers and represent Cumbria at dance performances across the North West and beyond?

YES? Then you should audition to be part of Cumbria Youth Dance Company!

Well done to the newly auditioned Cumbria Youth Dance Company. The audition was a one day intensive with fabulous Kelly McClelland leading at Newbiggin Village Hall. The audition took place alongside the CAT open day. This year we have 2 strands to the company with 14 selected dancers for CYDC Contemporary strand and 7 selected members for the Breakdance strand Hard2Beat. Well done to all those who auditioned. There was a lot of good talent present on the day and it was a tough job to choose. We hope those who weren't selected will join us next year and audition again. We have several young people who didn't gain a place last year but have this year and their perseverance and hard work has really paid off.

Those selected will now represent the county and work with visiting choreographers to perform across the county and hopefully the region! Watch this space for news on how they are getting on!!
