Project Y SCREEN 2021

Project Y SCREEN 2021

Project Y SCREEN is an exciting new programme offering young dancers aged 16 – 25 a unique experience to learn more about creating movement for camera and developing personal choreography skills in unique spaces.

Taking place from Monday 19th to Friday 30th July 2021, dancers will work online with YDance Artistic Director, Anna Kenrick, to create a unique dance piece to perform live over Zoom at the Project Y SCREEN Performance. To create this piece, dancers will connect with each other and develop their technique and creativity through the virtual studio.

Dancers will also work with Natalia Barua, a leading dance film maker in Scotland who will work collaboratively with the dancers to create an original dance film which will be screened at the Project Y SCREEN Performance.

The performance will take place on Friday 30th July and will be open to all who wish to enjoy this exciting virtual show.   

A typical Project Y SCREEN day will run from 10am -5pm. Each day dancers will take part in a technical warm up class followed by a range of creative and technical developmental sessions which will build movement for the live Zoom performance and the dance film. There will be time to work with other dancers in duets and trios, as a whole group, and time programmed away from the screen for dancers to work independently before sharing back to the group. Project Y SCREEN will allow dancers from all over the UK to connect with like-minded passionate dancers to create, dance and have fun!

Eligibility

To take part in Project Y SCREEN you must:

  • Be aged between 16 and 25 on the first day of the course
  • Be able to commit to all dates

You DO NOT need to be Scottish or living in Scotland, and you DO NOT need to be in full time training to take part in Project Y SCREEN, however professional dancers are not eligible to take part. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please contact YDance at lauren@ydance.org.

What are the benefits of Project Y SCREEN?

Project Y SCREEN will not only develop dancers technical and creative skills but will also ensure they have transferable skills to help them become industry ready. Through developing a range of skills and new understanding, dancers will leave with a greater confidence in their own abilities, and knowledge of a variety of ways to develop movement for theatre or screen.

What costs are involved?

The course fee for Project Y SCREEN is £300, but thanks to funding from the Leverhulme Trust all participants will be awarded a £150 grant towards the fee. Participants will therefore only be liable to pay £150.

When is Project Y SCREEN?

Project Y SCREEN will take place from Monday 19th to Friday 30th July 2021.

Auditions will take place online via Zoom on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th May 2021 from 6.30pm – 9pm. You only need to attend one audition.
