DAZL Boys 3K Fundraising appeal to get to U:Dance 2015 Achieved
On Saturday 25 April, 25 youth dance groups from around Yorkshire performed across West Yorkshire Playhouse and Yorkshire Dance as part of Fresh 2015. With some groups being considered for U.Dance, Youth Dance England’s annual competition, we are proud to announce that the judges had chosen DAZL Male Youth Dance Company (South Leeds) to be put forward to be part of the competition in Plymouth, which will be taking place from 22-25 July 2015.
The judges also stated that DAZL’s ‘Contaminated’ was ‘thoroughly engaging, authentic and visually strong’. ‘Contaminated’ looked at transmitted diseases and the stigmas and stereotypes attached to them by society.
The DAZL Boys come from the most deprived communities in Leeds they have a fundraising target of £3k to get them to Youth Dance England U:Dance 2015 Competition this will cover the boys stay for the 3 days at the event and also travel to Plymouth from Leeds and back. This will be an amazing opportunity for the lads down in Plymouth and as a result of the appeal the local Councillors from the Middleton Park ward have agreed to support the trip which is amazing with a £2100 donation. Along with a £400 donation from Youth Dance England and the online donations on our Big Give page means we have met this target – THANK YOU ALL
DAZL works with some of the most deprived community across the City and the people who donated on the BigGive page has meant that not only you have invested in a wonderful artistic opportunity but an investment into young people from these communities’ aspirations.
