National Youth Dance Company


Sadler's Wells is proud to be the host organisation for the new National Youth Dance Company (NYDC). This exciting new company aims to create and perform innovative and influential youth dance, and hopes to draw together some of the brightest young talent from across the country to work with our internationally renowned Associate Artists.

The NYDC meets during school holidays at Sadler's Wells and other regional venues to participate in four intensive weeks of training per year. The company gives members the opportunity to work with a range of inspirational teachers and choreographers, to learn, create and perform original work, drawing on a number of dance techniques including contemporary, hip hop, ballet and south Asian dance.

The NYDC is seeking dancers who are passionate about dance, who come from diverse backgrounds with experience in any dance style, and who simply love to perform.
