News Calling young dancers aged 16-19 - apply to be part of The U.Dance Ensemble!

20th September 2011

Through dx’s partnership with Youth Dance England (YDE) – the national organisation that champions and promotes dance for all children and young people – there are a number of national opportunities for young people from the West Midlands to get involved with dance.

As part of the national performance platform U.Dance 2012 , taking place at the Southbank Centre in London on the 13th to 16th July 2012, young dancers can apply to be part of the U.Dance Ensemble, a national youth company with young dancers from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Youth dance companies can also apply to perform at the event. There will be a regional selection event taking place at Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent on the 29th January. Click here for more information

The deadline for the Ensemble applications is 30th September 2011 - so there’s still time!

At DanceXchange our aim is to bring dance to more people in Birmingham and the West Midlands region, through performances, productions, classes and community outreach.

As we look to our long term future, we want to continue this work and we want to keep dance alive in the region. As a registered charity, we receive core funding from Arts Council England and Birmingham City Council, along with a range of trusts and foundations.

But we also need support from individuals and businesses to make this happen. 

By supporting DanceXchange, you will help us fulfil our core objectives: to produce exceptional work; to bring outstanding performances to Birmingham; and to enable people of all walks of life to engage in dance either as a participant, performer or audience member. It’s easy to show us your support!

Click here to Make a Donation. Every pound will help us transform lives through dance. Thanks to an Arts Council England Catalyst award, donations from individuals are matched automatically. This means that, combined with Gift Aid, a £10 donation can be worth £22.50 to us. However, the scheme is for a limited period only – all the more reason to support dx today!
