Quotes from MYDC members...


"My highlight has been working with different choreographers throughout the year and this has then led to loads of different performance opportunities."

"It’s been great to work with professional choreographers like Jean Abreu and Sally Marie (Sweetshop Revolution) - we get loads of opportunities." Interviewing Charlotte Vincent


"Performing in public spaces in the city centre is really scary and nerve racking alongside all the other professionals but once you have done it you feel really good - it’s such an achievement."


"My proudest moments have been performing in general across the year - we get loads of opportunities like performing as part of Dedications and Jump Start and then we got to create solos for performance through the STAND programme. After that we worked with Jean Abreu which really helped my confidence and one of my highlights was working with mapdance who created a piece on us for Jump Start. It was awesome."


"Being Youth Dance Ambassadors for Adjustments means we get to see loads of work and meet all the professionals."


"Working with Vanhulle Dance Theatre online was totally different for me - a real challenge - but it made me feel like I was ‘out there’ doing it even if we were in lockdown!"


"Working on the solo project STAND got me to really open the range of ideas that I could use as starting points or develop in the dance."


"Working with Sally Marie on STAND was amazing, I got to perform my ideas in front of my friends and family and I just felt totally supported."


"MYDC is exciting, new and fun."


"MYDC is unpredictable, outstanding and unique."


"MYDC is one of a kind - it’s a rare opportunity; a massive experience."


"It’s just been great in general."


"The experience of working with so many different choreographers is incredible - I have loads of new ideas and experiences."
