How Do I Take Part?

All performers are now confirmed for 2019. If you are keen to get involved this year, keep an eye out for industry workshops happening throughout March and April. Details coming soon.

Animate Orchestra

Animate Orchestra is a ground breaking and innovative project that was designed to address the drop off of instrumental learning between primary and secondary school. Animate Orchestra is open to any instrumental learner regardless of ability, is an opportunity for young people to create their own music and incorporates ‘non-traditional’ instruments into the orchestra.

Youth Dance Company

Every June, we recruit motivated and committed dancers aged 13 to 18, with an interest in Contemporary dance. Company members must be ready to commit to a full academic year of dance training. Prior dance experience is necessary; however, don’t be afraid to audition even with minimum or little experience, as we are looking for natural flair and creativity. Applications are now closed for 2018/19. Applications for the following academic year will open in June 2019.
