Walker Youth Dance Project

Based at Walker Technology College, Company of Others lead weekly sessions in dance and choreography which always lead to performance.

We believe in the co-creation of work with young people and the transformative power of performance to develop confidence, be witnessed, create connections and develop leadership skills.

The sessions are always free, take place after school and are open to anyone attending the school.

In 2017 the group performed for the first time to the whole school at The Dome in Walker, the creation of this work was generously supported by John D Grassroots Fund.

In 2018 they look forward to completing Arts Award Bronze, theatre visits and creating their own choreography thanks to support from Culture Bridge North East Fund, The North East Fund for the Arts and Community Foundation.
