Decade – wgytc & CYDC Summer 2012

We had a fantastic time working with members of wgytc and their staff on ‘Decade’ this Summer.  Below is a review of the performance, which some of you may have already seen on our Facebook page.  Thanks to all our friends at wgytc and we look forward to collaborating again soon.



Autumn Project 2012

Last week CYDC started rehearsing for their performance at St David’s Hall, Cardiff on 9th October.  We are collaborating with The National Dance Company of Wales and the National Opera of Wales presenting an interpretation of the music from the ballet ‘Scheherazade’.  We are just one of a number of youth groups and schools who will be taking part in this exciting project.

The piece was created last April by the Graduate Company under the direction of Julie Hobday, Lucy Heale and Luke Ganz.

Dance Days 2012

Taking place in and around the National Waterfront Museum Taliesin’s seventh annual dance festival this year brings free dance performances to Swansea as part of Adain Avion, part of London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

This year’s festival features a colourful promenade through the city with Willi Dorner Cie’s Bodies in Urban Spaces in which twenty dancers and freerunners explore their urban surroundings. Swiss choreographer Philippe Saire will collaborate with eight of Swansea Bowling Club’s oldest and youngest members to perform a new live choreography based on his 2008 short film, La Boule d’Or which will be performed on the bowling green in Victoria Park. We will of course see the return of festival regulars, County Youth Dance Company, and many more.

New contemporary works

Welcome to the tenth perfomance by CYDC at the Taliesin Arts CentreCYDC Taliesin April 2012
(April 12th 2012).

The company have been working since February with local choreographers Doug Comley and Julie Hobday. The work you will see in this evening’s perfomance has been created during weekly sessions and an intense rehearsal period of two days at Gower College Swansea (Gorseinon Campus).

In addition there is a piece by the Graduate Company. The Graduate Company is an offshoot of CYDC which was established in 2007, it involves students who have begun higher education training or are currently in work. Its aim is to nurture their talents as well as inspire the younger members of the company.
