For the second year in succession, we were guest performers at ‘Blaze’, a unique dance event run by Trinity Laban. Blaze is an interactive day of dance for girls aged 11-16 years, aimed to encourage them to participate in dance. The day featured performances by female dancers in order to inspire the participants. Audience members stated that their highlight of the event was ‘being able to watch all of the different performances’. A huge thank you to Trinity Laban for including us in such an uplifting event.

The dancers have started work with their first choreographer, Gerrard Martin and it is looking good! Gerrard is an extremely experienced artist and we are fortunate to have him on board. Have a look at his extensive biog here: www.gerrardmartindance.com
The dancers worked with both Gerrard and videographer Charlotte Levy to film sections of their piece, 'In a State of Lack'. The footage will be made into a short dance film. Watch this space for the full dance footage. Until then, have a look at short excerpt of the work filmed.
The dancers had the unique experience of working with legendary dance artist, Namron, in an exciting contemporary dance workshop. The workshop was challenging and fast paced and thoroughly enjoyed by all (including myself!). The workshop was performed with the accompaniment of the fantastic drummer, Charles. Such amazing energy!
Since the workshop, Namron has also been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list! This is a well deserved recognition to his services to dance and I hope to be able to have him back again to work with the dancers. Thank you Namron, OBE!
Artistry Youth Dance has been selected as a regional finalist for 'U.Dance', a national youth dance festival organised by Youth Dance England, Sadler's Wells and Trinity Laban. We've been mentioned in this article by London Dance (alongside the other finalists) regarding our selection in this fantastic event! Very exciting!
