Young People aged 8 - 19 years

NRgDance is our FREE youth dance activity programme which takes its inspiration from hip hop, street and contemporary dance.

The programme offers high-energy weekly dance classes in five locations, Woolwich, West Greenwich, Coldharbour, Abbey Wood and Eltham and is designed to attract young people of all genders and abilities - offering a range of skills to include team building, commitment, confidence and increased physical health and mental well-being.

Participants can undertake an Arts Award, (a qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework, Trinity College London) and throughout the year young participants are encouraged to take part in a variety of workshops delivered by guest choreographers and artists in varying styles to enrich their learning. There are also many opportunities to perform and share within our Events and Festivals Programme.

Of course, we also want to ensure anyone displaying a passion and interest in dance is able to take it to the next level and so we encourage and support young dancers aged 13 plus to audition for Lotus Youth Dance Company. We also support young people to seek out further opportunities to attend open days and auditions at variety of Higher Education Institutions should this fit with their own life aspirations.

The programme is offered free. However if you can afford to make a donation to our work you will be prompted to do so at the checkout - and your contribution will be very gratefully received.
