Jump In (2015 – 2016)
The Jump In project was targeted at primary schools across Scotland.
YDance spent five weeks working in a Local Authority, in partnership with the Youth Arts Hub, with classes from six participating primary schools with children aged 7 – 11. During the five week period the young people worked with a YDance Tutor to create a new dance piece to be performed for friends and family. From there we ran free weekly dance sessions in the area.
