NOW CLOSED FOR APPLICATIONS – Origins Youth Platform celebrates aspiring, sub-regional dancers from Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire who are aiming to push themselves further in their dance education and training. We are seeking dancers, dance groups and companies who are aged between 9 and 19 years, and up to 25 years for dancers with physical disabilities or who are neurodivergent.

We are looking for a variety of high-quality dance performances from the breadth of genres. The work being proposed for the platform can be existing or new. If you are successful, you will benefit from a professionally-led dance workshop during the day which will give you the opportunity to learn new skills, build confidence and to meet other like-minded young people.

You will also have the chance to be part of the audience for all peer-performances during the dress rehearsal, and then finally, you will take your work to the stage in front of a live audience. You must be represented by an 18+ group leader and we welcome applications from group sizes up to 25 young performers, within any dance style.

Please complete the application form available below and return to katie@pdsw.org.uk by 9am on Friday 10th January 2020.
