Anjali Youth Dance Company has been selected to perform at U.Dance England on 4 July at the Birmingham Hippodrome. They are the second group from the south east to be chosen alongside FuzzyLogic. YDE was so impressed with their performance at the regional platform, U.Dance South East, that they have been invited to perform at the national event.

Anjali Youth Dance Company use dance to realise and celebrate the potential of people with learning disabilities. The company produces high quality contemporary dance for public performance and provides professional training for young people with learning disabilities.

Anjali will perform The Waves from Okinawa, inspired by the Japanese Pacific island. The piece is performed to traditional music from Okinawa played live on the sanshin, a traditional 3-stringed instrument resembling a lute. The dance explores the cultural influences of the island through quality movements of softness and gravity, in a structured choreography drawn from improvisation.
