Hampshire Youth Dance Company
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 are working with two dancers from Matthew Bourne's New Adventures company and will create a piece that will be performed as a curtain raiser to Edward Scissorhands at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton. This project has been supported by Hampshire County Council's New Dimensions in Dance programme and Mayflower Theatre.
Auditions are held every October. You can book your place online.
