Cascade Youth Collective

The Youth Collective was formed in 2013 bringing together selected dancers from our Youth Companies. The Collective is an opportunity for our students to collaborate, working with outside choreographers and take part in additional 'high profile' performances and projects across the region.

Rehearsals take place during the weekends and school holidays with dancers dedicating their time and passion to technique and choreography. The Collective is led by both directors who fuse their choreographic styles together, creating work that is rich in contemporary dance, jazz, performance and physical theatre.

The Collective are also heavily involved in our annual dance productions, taking lead character roles and dancing in additional chorus and troupe choreography. Find out more via our dance production page.

Thank you for giving Hannah the opportunity to dance at the Commonwealth Youth Festival. She had the time of her life & had a chance to take part in so many workshops, watch all types of performances and, of course, perform on the stage!
