Opportunity Overview

Dorset Youth Dance (DYD) brings young dancers the chance to create, excel and perform in an Autumn- Winter ’21 term of contemporary dance classes, based in Martinstown, Dorchester.

After a joyful Spring & Summer creating and performing ‘Tess’, DYD classes resume on Sunday 10th October with Juniors & Seniors holding ‘open classes’. An open class allows a dancer who is new to DYD, to give class a go before committing to a full term. We’re excited to welcome both old faces and new!
