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 forU.Dance, Youth Dance England’s annual competition, we are proud to announce that the judges have chosen Atmosphere (Cockburn School, Beeston) and 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.
Two very different pieces, but both very worthy of their entry into U.Dance. We wish them the best of luck in the competition!
The day as a whole was a fantastic success, with copious amounts of talent being presented by all young people involved, bring on Fresh 2016!
Big Thank You to Tracey Witney for supporting us with the initial setup of this company, Also big well done to DAZL Choreographer Vicky Mawson and New DAZL Choreographer and NSCD Student Mason Jubb.
