National Youth Dance Company Reveals Line-Up for it’s Sixth Year

Published 17 October 2017

National Youth Dance Company (NYDC), the country’s flagship organisation for young dancers, run by Sadler’s Wells, announces its line-up of 41 talented young dancers for this year. Through NYDC experience workshops held in 16 different cities throughout the UK, 30 new members were selected from all over the country, joining 11 dancers returning from last year’s NYDC cohort.

The new company is working under the guidance of 2017/18 Guest Artistic Director Sharon Eyal to create Used To Be Blonde, a new work which will premiere at Sadler’s Wells on Saturday 7 April 2018, followed by a UK National Tour. The dancers are mentored during four intensive residencies over the year in order to create, rehearse and develop the new piece.

Now in its sixth year, NYDC has established a reputation for innovative, challenging and influential work, producing open-minded, curious and brave dancers. The company brings together the brightest talent from across England, immersing the members fully in the process of creating, performing and touring new work, giving them a unique insight into the dance profession. NYDC has a track record of putting young people on paths to successful dance careers, with over 80% of all former NYDC dancers now either in further dance studies, in vocational training or working professionally.
