Yorkshire Dance creates opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to see, make and take part in high quality dance. As part of our crucial work, we're launching a new campaign - Promise + Progress - aimed at supporting young dancers across the region to find their talent, grow it and take their first steps into a career in dance. And by donating NOW, with Gift Aid and the Arts Council's Catalyst scheme, the value of your donation will more than double!
Yorkshire Dance works with a range of partners to develop and deliver grass roots dance opportunities in communities across the region. An example is our Rotherham Boys Dance which promotes positive diversionary activity for boys and enables them to meet inspirational role models. We run two thriving youth dance companies and, through Kickstart, support three recent graduates each year to develop expertise in delivering youth and community dance and establish their own careers.
supports travel costs for a young dancer to attend interviews and auditions
pays for a professional one-to-one mentoring session for a young dancer
pays for a weekly dance class, reaching up to 20 young people
We are always delighted to hear from people who would like to volunteer some of their time to help us manage our busy building, with our work taking dance into a range of communities, and at major one-off events around Yorkshire. Please send us your CV and a covering letter, explaining why you'd like to volunteer and when you are available by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to our postal address. Please note, we may not be able to offer a volunteer position to all applicants.
