The National Youth Dance Company of Scotland (NYDCS)
Formed by YDance in 2011, the National Youth Dance Company of Scotland is the flagship contemporary dance company for Scotland’s exceptional young dancers aged 16 – 21.
The company works with YDance Artistic Director Anna Kenrick, in a series of creation intensive weekends once a month, to explore, create and rehearse a new work to be toured nationally and internationally. Dancers also get the opportunity to take part in exchanges with international youth dance groups and companies. The work of the National Youth Dance Company of Scotland aims to change the perceptions of what youth dance is and can be. The pieces showcase the movement language, individuality and minds of the dancers in the company that year.
