Cando2 youth dance classes have been a flagship part of Candoco’s learning activity for nearly two decades; reaching hundreds of disabled and non-disabled young dancers aged 13 – 25, offering rich and rigorous dance experiences, increasing confidence, developing dance skills and nurturing creative potential, through weekly dance classes.
In 2020, Candoco will launch a new dance training company; Candoco Youth Dance Company, to meet the appetite and talent of young people today and to respond to the severe lack of training opportunities and progression routes for disabled young people.
This new youth company will meet on weekends for focussed technical training in a range of contemporary dance styles. It will take creative inspiration from leading artists in the field, and involve making and performance experience, all within an inclusive and supportive learning environment. This training opportunity will provide individualised pathways into further education or towards a career in dance, if desired.
Our youth programme will cost £39,000 per year to deliver and we can only make this happen with your support.
Your donations to the campaign will be match-funded by our charity partner Lake House Charitable Foundation, meaning that your donation will be doubled. A donation of £25 will raise £50 towards our final target of £5,000 and help us to launch this vital new youth company.
