To our NYDC family and friends,

As the country’s flagship youth dance company, we bring together dancers from across the country to create and perform. So it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone our activity for at least 12 weeks to help contain the coronavirus pandemic. This includes the NYDC April residency, the world premiere of our new work by 2019-20 Guest Artistic Director Russell Maliphant and our NYDC workshops during the April- June period.

Keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority and our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the coronavirus. We are now working hard to reschedule our activity wherever possible and are monitoring developments and following government, NHS and Public Health England guidance to determine the best time to do so.

This is a difficult time for us all. While we cannot physically dance together over the next few months, we will remain active and creative. We are looking at ways that we can all still share our love of dance and will make new content available digitally. Follow us on our social media channels for updates.

For dancers who are interested in participating in NYDC Workshops, please register your contact details

through this online form

We will be in touch with everyone registered as soon as we have more information to share with you. 

Thank you for your support and commitment to NYDC and for your understanding at this difficult time.

We look forward to dancing together with everyone again soon. 

With love,

The NYDC team
