YDance, the national dance organisation for children and young people in Scotland, is seeking talented dancers aged 16 to 25 for its dance performance training programme.

Established by YDance in 2006, Project Y is the only intensive dance training programme in the UK offering young dancers the experience of creating, rehearsing and performing as part of a touring contemporary dance company.

Spending four weeks during the summer as a member of the Project Y Company, dancers will work with four choreographers to create and rehearse four new dance works before performing in venues across Scotland in the annual Project Y Tour. The dancers are involved at the heart of the creative process and gain invaluable experience of what it’s like to rehearse and perform as a professional dancer.

The Project Y Performance Course 2020 will run for four weeks starting on Monday 6 July. The first three weeks will be based in Glasgow to create and rehearse with the choreographers. On the fourth week, the company will tour and perform in venues across Scotland.

To take part in the Project Y Performance course you must be aged between 16 and 25 on the first day of the course and be able to commit to all rehearsal and performance dates.

You do not need to be Scottish or living in Scotland, and you do not need to be in full-time training to take part in the Project Y Performance Course, however professional dancers are not eligible to take part.

Applications are now open. Anyone interested in applying should visit www.ydance.org for more information.
