Formed in 2012, in partnership with Preston based dance artist Sarah Hall, PYDC offers young dancers in Preston the chance to develop their skills and open doors to future career opportunities in the dance sector. The company has been expanding ever since and remains within the Ludus Dance Family, whilst being guided and managed Sarah's Blue Moose Dance Company.
PYDC supports gifted and talented young people aged 12- 19 years to develop their dance technique and creative practice, producing high quality performance work. The company holds an annual audition to recruit new members and aims to engage people from all social backgrounds and levels of dance experience. In 2015-16, the company was selected for UDance Northwest and then successfully chosen as 1 of 3 youth groups from th North West to represent the area at the UDance National Festival!
The Preston Youth Dance Company is funded by the Arts Council England and Lancashire County Council and thanks go to Cardinal Newman College for their support in providing dance studio facilities as well as to the Dance Department at UCLAN.
