Dorset Youth Dance Company Auditions

Dorset Youth Dance (DYD), managed by Activate, is hosting an open audition for young people aged 12-25 to join their weekly pre-company Feeder Class and Company, led by Artistic Director Claire Benson.

Do you, or someone you know, have a real passion and enthusiasm for dance and want to take that extra leap in training? We are looking for young people who have a desire to learn in a fun and hard-working environment, to join DYD Feeder Class and Company and work creatively with the new and existing DYD dancers. Dancers in DYD Company and Feeder Class are also offered various opportunities to work with professional companies in one-off workshops, towards curtain raisers and performances and perform in youth dance platforms such as U. Dance South West.

One of DYD’s original Feeder Class members says

“I think I have learnt loads since I started DYD. It has helped me enormously with my dance, my fitness and flexibility...I also think Claire has helped me by breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, which I think Is important in dance because then you can really see what you can achieve, which is also really important, both in dance and in your life generally.”

Time: 11am-1pm

Venue: Activity Studio 1 at Thomas Hardye School, Queens Avenue, Dorchester, DT1 2ET
