TeesDance announces the launch of MoveUP - a new development programme for aspiring young dance creators in Tees Valley.

MoveUP is a free, six-month programme providing young people with the opportunity to progress their dance making and choreography skills. With the support of mentors, participants will develop and create new work, ending with a sharing on our stage in June.

Applications are now open to all young people aged between 14 – 19, or up to the age of 25 if d/Deaf or disabled, from across Tees Valley (Darlington, Stockton, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, and Redcar and Cleveland). Applications close on Friday 14 January 2022.

TeesDance is hosting a free taster session for those interested in learning more about the programme at Darlington Hippodrome on Sunday 19 December at 11AM. Registering prior to attending is required.

MoveUP 2022 is delivered in partnership with Darlington Hippodrome and kindly supported by Arts Council England, Creative Darlington, and Darlington Borough Council. The following organisations and artists are also offering support: Dance City, One Dance UK, TIN Arts and Patricia Verity Suarez.
