Have a wonderful holiday / Easter / pagan ceremony of your choice. I took this shot a couple of days before Emerge, One Youth Dance’s last production.
I’ve only covered the company for a couple of years but in that time I’ve seen girl dancers grow into confident competent women. Young people love the company and the opportunity to dance, and there’s a sense of family in this company that I’ve not seen elsewhere. The Company is successful and growing well, and now it’s a charity. But the people who run it (also very young) are doing so in addition to full-time jobs. If you’d like to find out how you can help please contact me and I’ll put you in touch with Joanna Shaw, who runs it.
I’m working on a small fundraiser for One Youth Dance at the moment. If you’d like to find out more contact me or subscribe to this blog.
