A collection of four new and exhilarating contemporary dance works created by guest choreographers Alan Greig, Hagit Yakira, Steven Martin and Theo Clinkard. The annual Project Y tour showcases the extraordinary talent of some of the UK’s best young contemporary dancers aged 16 to 21 upon completion of the four-week intensive dance training programme – the Project Y Performance Course.
Have what it takes?
Project Y is the only intensive dance training programme in the UK offering young dancers, aged 16 to 21, the experience of creating, rehearsing and performing as part of a touring contemporary dance company.
Spending four weeks during summer as a member of the 2017 Project Y Company, dancers will work with four choreographers to create and rehearse four new dance works before performing in venues across Scotland in the 2017 Project Y Tour.
