At SYDC we understand how hard it is for up and coming choreographers to get their work funded and therefore get their voice out into the world creatively.

We believe in the importance of youth having a place to express themselves through art and we wholeheartedly believe in the power of young people working together to create beautiful things for our world.

That’s why we’re excited to be producing our second Triple Bill season featuring three brand new works from three incredible choreographers.

  • Access to large rehearsal space and time to create the work

  • Full marketing for the work as part of the Triple Bill

  • Photography of their work
