Urban dance is a powerful way of connecting young people with both their bodies and their communities, through the music and moves they love.
In September 2011 Take Art Dance will be starting a new Urban Dance Project in Yeovil, with a focus on creating Urban Hubs within communities, giving young dancers a chance to build their professional experience and providing advanced skills training for dance teachers.
The project will be partly led by young people, who will be crucial to setting up the Urban Hubs, which could include Street Dance and Break Dancing workshops, DJ and Graffiti workshops and demonstrations by local groups. The Hubs will be in the Westfield and Milford areas of Yeovil.
We are looking for passionate, exciting young people, who would like to get involved in helping us set up this project… As a highlight of the project, we are hoping to bring together a summer Urban Dance event in July 2012 that will tie in with Big Dance and the Olympics.
Some of the young people involved will have the opportunity to pursue the Dance Leaders award as part of this project through the Hubs or workshops held at The Octagon Theatre. We will also be holding workshops for School Teachers to learn Urban Dance styles, as well as advanced skills development workshops for local Street Dance Teachers.
