Performance at the Carriageworks Theatre

August 17, 2007 at 2:49 pm (Learning & Access)

Our four-week Gallery 37 Plus project came to a close on Wednesday night with a performance at the Carriageworks Theatre in Leeds, choreographed by Sharon Watson.

The project involved young People in Leeds aged 16-19 training with four of the UK’s top dance organisations including NBT, Phoenix Dance Theatre, The Northern School of Contemporary Dance and Yorkshire Dance. Gallery 37 Plus provided an excellent foundation in hip-hop/urban dance, contemporary dance and ballet. Participants took daily classes with dance artists Simon Kidd, Douglas Thorpe and Tiia Ourilla. The project was part of a national initiative for young people who are not in full time education or employment. Participants received a training grant and a Young People’s Art Award on completion of the project.
