Five young dancers stand for a portrait all together in a studio

Meet the next generation of choreographers.


Stay ahead of the curve and be one of the first to experience the work of these up-and-coming creatives. Our 2023/24 Young Associates share their work in a mixed bill, each showcasing their distinct and diverse creative worlds as they take the next step in their careers as choreographers.

After their sold-out debut in the Lilian Baylis Studio in 2023, the Young Associates are coming back for a one-night-only show at Sadler’s Wells Theatre this Autumn, giving a platform to a new generation of artistic voices.

BLUE MAKWANA is a London based choreographer and performer. Her choreographic goal is to highlight her dancers, exhibit their strength, display exertion and make work that is entertaining and continuously evolving.

Elisabeth Mulenga is a dance artist based in London. Elisabeth was born in Birmingham and is of German and Zambian heritage. Her work can be unflinching and disturbing as well as tender and intimate. In April 2022, Elisabeth competed in the Grand Final of BBC Young Dancer 2022, winning the Choreographic Innovation Award for her solo ‘Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani?’.

Maiya Leeke is a London based choreographer, performer, and teacher. She was a finalist in BBC Young Dancer 2022, is an alumnus of National Youth Dance Company working with Alesandra Seutin and has an MA from Northern School of Contemporary Dance where she danced with Candoco Dance Company.

Roseann & Sula are choreographers based in London. Both originally from Scotland’s central belt, they are founding members of Tough Boys Dance Collective, and have presented work across black box theatres, night clubs, and site-specific spaces. Their work is about the human experience and its intersections with gender politics, Scottish identity, religion, and class.
