After the 12 sessions, young people will be given the opportunity to share their work within their community.

The great thing about working with Dance City is that we have lots of partners and relationships with arts and community settings across the region so we can tailor this experience to what would be best for you.

The sharing could be at your venue or local arts venue if appropriate. Giving your young people a taste of what it is like to perform.



After the 12 sessions, not only will your young people be given the chance to perform their work at school, but they will be able to see a professional work which will be either showcased in Newcastle’s Dance City in-house theatre or at one of our partnering Arts Venues.

A chance to see professional dancers, observe their performance and further develop leaning about choreography.

TERM 3 – APRIL – JULY 2022


After the 12 sessions, young people will be given the chance to perform their work as part of a dance festival including other schools and community groups in our Dance City theatre. A great opportunity to perform on the big stage and witness other dances performed by young people from across the region. Celebrating success and achievement together.

‘It was my first experience of Dance City.  As head, I know that dance lessons had been going on….I had seen bits and bobs.  However, I was absolutely gobsmacked when I saw not only my school but the overall performance.  The quality and messages were superb. I’m sure we`ll be working with Dance City again.’

‘Excellent – very skilful delivery of the dance workshops pitched at the children’s level and led with a great deal of energy, humour and understanding of how to move the children on.’

‘The team were brilliant with the planning and communication regarding the event I knew exactly where we had to be, at what time, doing what activity and how much it would cost.’
