Yuva Gati Strand

Each year the  Yuva Gati strand of our Centre for Advanced Dance Training programme offers FREE outreach workshops to dance students with a view to recruiting students for the new 2017-18 intake.

These are delivered by Yuva Gati programme director Anusha Subramanyam and provide an excellent opportunity to experience the high quality training the scheme offers.  It also gives dancers the chance to understand how the training works and the many benefits they can receive by being a Yuva Gati student.

DanceXchange run the national South Asian dance strand that provides training in Bharatanatyam or Kathak styles for young people living across England. ‘Yuva Gati’, meaning ‘Youth Movement’ was launched in January 2009 in partnership with Sampad Arts.

We deliver outreach workshops in lower arts engagement areas and our programme can offer financial support bursaries offered by the Department of Education. The workshop is open for parents to come and observe with the opportunity to engage in a discussion with Anusha Subramanyam about any questions they may have.
