Step Youth Dance Company: SYꞤC

Step into Dance offers talented and committed young dancers the opportunity to get involved with the Step Youth Dance Company, SYꞤC.

If you’re interested in dance as a profession, SYꞤC offers a more serious experience, reflecting the professional expectations you will encounter if you continue to train in the art form.

SYNC is a mixed dance style company and dancers will have the opportunity to build repertoire in a range of diverse genres, whilst building upon strength, technical skills and improving your confidence. The company aims to challenge your knowledge, experience, performance skills and perspective of dance and each session gives you an opportunity to learn, create, express yourself and spend time with other talented young dancers.

Of course you’ll also have fun, meet friends, and benefit from the positive physical and mental health outcomes we know dance provides!

You must be aged between 11-18 years old and be situated in London or Essex to become a member of SYꞤC.

Any questions, please contact the team via stepintodance@rad.org.uk | 020 7326 8036.

 

What are the benefits of joining SYꞤC?

You will work on core strength and body alignment and develop your ability and versatility as a dancer. Working with high profile dance companies such as Rambert School, you will develop your technique and choreographic skills in dance styles that originated from Hip Hop culture. The company aims to challenge your knowledge, experience, and perspective of dance.

Throughout the year you will perform new choreographic work at a number of events, including our annual Battle, and our end of year celebration of dance, Step Live Festival.

Previous Step Youth Dance Company dancers have gone on to train at universities, conservatoires and colleges such as London Contemporary Dance School, Bird College, the BRIT school and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Some even teach for us at Step into Dance!
