“NYDC is designed to give opportunity to its dancers, but it’s also a great canvas for choreographers: a chance to work on a large scale, with a big cast of eager performers. The combination makes Used To Be Blonde by far the most interesting work I’ve seen by Eyal. Throughout, there’s a sense that this horde of dancers are choosing to pour themselves into the collective endeavour, bringing fresh momentum to her club style”THE INDEPENDENT

Now in its sixth year, National Youth Dance Company returns to Sadler’s Wells with the premiere of a new work created by the 2017-18 guest artistic director Sharon Eyal.
“A name worth taking note of” (Evening Standard), Eyal is one of the most exciting female choreographers working today. The Israeli dance-maker co-founded L-E-V dance company, which performed Eyal’s OCD Love at Sadler’s Wells in 2016. This new commission will contain Eyal’s signature style, conveying extreme emotions through movement.
This unique choreographic approach combined with the young dancers’ energy and talent is set to produce a mesmerising experience, pushing the dancers to their limits.
