New dance project for boys

Have your say

A three-year dance project for boys has been launched in Rotherham.

Yorkshire Dance, supported by Provident Financial’s Good Neighbour Fund, is running the project for youngsters aged 11 to 16, to teach them a range of styles including street and break dancing.

Youngsters will have the chance to work with professional dancers and choreographers, and to perform at a range of events.

Adele Wragg, project leader, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for boys across Rotherham to have fun, get fit, learn lots of new skills and meet new friends.

“The boys that joined the project earlier this year have performed at events in Rotherham and Sheffield and are due to perform at the National Youth Dance Festival in Leeds next week, which is a great achievement.

“We’re now keen to get more boys involved in the project through an intensive scheme we are running during the summer.’

The summer project is free of charge for participants.
