What is Young Creatives?

Young Creatives is a national programme managed by One Dance UK. As part of the programme, in Year 1 young choreographers will benefit from the opportunity to attend online workshops with industry professionals to explore many different choreographic methods, processes and ideas. Each Young Creative will be encouraged to develop their choreographic skill set with the support Year 1 Creative Lead Rhian Robbins. Following successful completion of Year 1, Young Creatives will then be invited to continue into Year 2 where they will create their own independent dance work, either as a live performance or film. During Year 2, participants receive high-quality and personalised mentoring from a professional choreographer, leading to their final dance piece being showcased at a professional venue! Previous Young Creatives showcases have taken place at Rambert, Royal Opera House and Southbank Centre London!
