We will also be creating a New weekly accredited DAZL East Leeds Youth Dance Company which would have a focus on high quality contemporary dance all would feed into local community event for young people & wider community.
All provision for the young people/ community is designed to be inclusive, fun, accessible and have a real young people led / focus within them which is the ethos of DAZL, training up local people to inspire & work back in the community.This will be a mixture of new projects & building on supporting existing work/ enthusiasm.
