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

If Covid restrictions allow, training takes place at the Royal Academy of Dance headquarters in Battersea each Sunday. If restrictions are in place and the company is unable to meet in person, an online alternative is offered.

Step Into Dance is a Royal Academy of Dance programme in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation, an organisation that empowers young people and widens their opportunities through grant giving and achievement recognition.

Have fun, make friends and build your strength and technical skills in a range of dance styles all whilst improving your confidence, physical and mental health. 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 ZooNation The Kate Prince Company 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 Company dancers have gone on to train at universities, conservatoires and colleges such as London Contemporary Dance School, TBird College, the BRIT school and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Some even teach for us at Step into Dance!
