Dance United Yorkshire delivers bespoke projects, modelled on contemporary dance training and performance, working in partnership with frontline organisations across the Yorkshire region. Programmes are delivered by an integrated team of specialist dance facilitators and support staff and they are developed for a range of specific client groups, including young people who are NEET, under Youth Offending Teams, within Pupil Referral Units, identified by Families First teams or at risk of Child Sexual Exploitation.

They projects range from short intensive performance projects which run for 5 weeks to longer interventions delivered over 10 or 11 weeks. Dance United Yorkshire also delivers evening progression routes for young people to remain engaged with the provision. 

Dance United Yorkshire have recently completed a 10 week intensive provision with young people from across the Bradford district, supported by Bradford Families First and Bradford Youth Offending Team. The project culminated with a performance at the Alhambra Theatre in December to a packed out audience!

Dance United Yorkshire are investing in a new stream of work following a project in the Autumn Term delivering high quality contemporary dance practise to women who are victims of domestic abuse. The enthusiasm and momentum gathered from the first intervention will see us launch our Women’s Performance Company in Bradford in 2016.
