Autumn Developments with NYAW

Following our successful Summer programme of events we are now moving into Autumn with our dance and theatre development courses.  Now in its 3rd year, Step Up #10 is the first session for the new intake of young dancers who showed a good level of skill and talent when auditioning for NYDW 2015 but were not quite ready for a place on the residential course.  We look forward to seeing them on the 3rd and 4th October.

The first session for the Aspire members took place in August at Aberystwyth University campus.  Led by Jain Boon, Tonya Smith and Emma Stevens Johnson, the Aspire team enjoyed 3 days of skills development plus time to get to know each other.  They meet up again at the end of October – hopefully with homework done and ready for everything that Jain and Tonya have planned for them!

We wish all the participants good luck and hope they enjoy their time with us.
