UPDATED 12:13PM on Friday 27th March 2020

In response to the ongoing threat from the COVID-19 virus, we have suspended all personal delivery of YDance’s programme, to ensure the safety of our  participants and staff. We are continuing to monitor all advice from Government and from industry bodies to ensure we are up to date with developments and are taking appropriate action.

The YDance office is closed, and staff are working from home and can be reached by email. Any telephone calls to the office will be directed to call a member of staff’s mobile number.

For the following projects, the current status is as follows:

CLPL courses for teachers and Dance Artist CPD courses

These courses are currently scheduled for May, and bookings will continue to be taken online. If we need to cancel the training nearer the time, all bookers will be given a full refund and will have priority booking when the training block is re-scheduled.

Horizons Aberdeen and Horizons Stirling

Recruitment Days will now take place in September rather than April. Online applications will remain open and applicants will be contacted once new dates are confirmed.


The last 3 weekly classes of YCreate on 21st and 28th March and 4th April have been cancelled. Please contact lauren@ydance.org for information on refunds.  A number of online videos suitable for the YCreate age range will be shared weekly on our website. The April – June term of YCreate classes will not go ahead.

Hothouse Level 2

Online materials are being developed so that participants can continue to learn whilst direct contact is not possible. A decision on whether the planned performance will take place in July will be made in June.

National Youth Dance Company of Scotland

The next rehearsals are not scheduled until early May and a decision on whether we can go ahead will be made at least a week before the scheduled dates.

Horizons Glasgow

The next rehearsals are not scheduled until late April and a decision on whether we can go ahead will be made at least a week before the scheduled dates.

Project Y Performance Course 2020

We will continue to plan for the Project Y Performance Course happening in July and make a final decision when it is clearer how long theatres and colleges will be closed.

Anyone who has questions about YDance’s work at this time, please email carolyn@ydance.org directly.

Stay safe!
