To transform a space into a dance studio and create a base for the children and young people who participate in Bridport Youth Dance.

About the project

We are in the process of securing a space to transform into a dance studio for Bridport Youth Dance.  We need to raise funds for a specialised floor, mirrors, furnishings and a decent stereo for the studio.

Bridport Youth Dance is going from strength to strength and is making a positive impact on many young peoples lives in West Dorset.  We currently run classes in a variety of venues across Bridport but the opportunity of a base for Bridport Youth Dance would be an exciting prospect and would help ensure that BYD can continue to promote a healthy dance ecology in the area and a lasting legacy for local youngsters.

Through this work BYD aims to inspire, nurture young talent and provide valuable creative, artistic and performance opportunities for young people.  Bridport Youth Dance provides a safe, educational, caring and supportive environment for it's young participants, it encourages children to aim high, it develops confidence, enables children to unlock their creative potential and provides a sense of well being among the young people. Our aim is to continue to promote access to dance and in particular to boys.  The prospect of a 'home' for Bridport Youth Dance...a space for rehearsals and to develop our vibrant education programme would be a great asset and an exciting and positive development in sustaining our future.
