Our past projects
Over the last 30 years YDance have provided a wide range of inspiring, inclusive and creative dance experiences for children and young people across Scotland.
With young people at the centre of our work, we aim to remove the barriers that they may face in accessing high-quality dance provision in their local communities.
These projects have included:
A two-year dance and disability project which aimed to provide free regular dance activity for disabled young people in North Ayrshire, the Western Isles, Falkirk and North Lanarkshire.
A year-long dance project aimed at increasing physical activity and improving the health and wellbeing of young women and girls in North Lanarkshire.
LULULO developed creative dance skills and engaged the imagination of primary school children to enable them to explore the history of their communities. Part of the Paisley2021 bid.
A community dance project for young people and dance artists in Germany, Netherlands, Scotland and Spain.
A partnership project with sportscotland delivered the Active Girls Project, supporting teenage girls in Scotland to become more physically active through dance.
A project set up to establish a new dance group for 7 to 11 year olds in areas across Scotland with little or no dance provision.
This involved teenage girls across Ayrshire, Glasgow and Orkney encouraging them get fit and feel good about themselves through dance.
This project invited asylum seekers, refugees and their friends from across Glasgow to come together to create and perform.
A programme of quality dance experiences for boys and young men across Scotland, which involved creating a number of local dance groups.
National Museum of Scotland and Rural Life Museum
Working with these partners, YDance offered dance opportunities in the museums based on different topics and themes.
