The National Youth Dance Company of Scotland (NYDCS) has been invited to take part in the Australian Youth Dance Festival and in a cultural exchange with one of Australia’s top youth dance groups, Origins Dance Company in Melbourne, Australia 30 June – 14 July 2019.  

NYDCS members Caittie, Catriona, Emma, Ewan, Jemma, Jennifer, Josh, Julia, Melissa, Mia, Nicola, Shannon and Taine are carrying out a variety of events individually and as a company to raise the money they need to go.  Please help them reach their target of £4000!

NYDCS is extremely grateful for any support you can give towards their goal.

YDance established the National Youth Dance Company of Scotland in 2011.  Each year Scotland's most talented young dancers audition for the chance to become part of NYDCS.  Twelve young dancers are chosen to have the opportunity to work with YDance Artistic Director and guest choreographers to improve their technical, creative and performance skills.  Each year they create a new piece of contemporary dance which they then perform and tour in Scotland, the UK and Internationally.  

NYDCS will be performing at an International Showcase event as part of the Australian Youth Dance Festival at Melbourne’s iconic Meat Market venue and will take part in masterclasses with Australia’s most respected dance artists.

This kind of collaborative international programme is of huge benefit to the young people involved, broadening their horizons and making new connections across the globe.
