Hampshire Youth Dance Company (HYDC) has a well-established reputation for the high quality of its work and the opportunities it offers talented dancers. Many past members have gone on to pursue full-time dance training and to embark on dance careers.

The company works in contemporary dance and rehearses weekly and during the February half-term in Eastleigh, where it is supported with rehearsal space by The Point.

The company has worked with a diverse range of professional choreographers including: Yael Flexer, Leon Baugh, Ben Wright, Jonathon Lunn, .Keira Martin and Bawren Tavaziva. This year they worked with a dancer from Matthew Bourne's New Adventures company and created a piece that was performed as a curtain raiser to Edward Scissorhands at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton. This project was supported by Hampshire County Council's New Dimensions in Dance programme and Mayflower Theatre.
