Company dancer Div reflects on the companies first residency.

Creating Choreography Day 2

The South Yorkshire Youth Dance Company (SYYDC) residency so far has created a new exciting pathway for me as a dancer. I now feel like I am comfortable in dancing and trying out different styles of dance.

It’s been really difficult this week doing class in different contemporary style and learning choreography for a new dance piece, but I know that the more work I put in, the better I will get as a dancer. 

It has been the best opportunity for me this year and I am looking forward to making new friends in the company. Dancing and working with other people this week has allowed me to see different interpretations of dance. By watching my company peers, I can see how they move and give advice on movements or, use it as inspiration.
