Welcome To Youth Dance Tynedale

Youth Dance Tynedale (YDT) is a high-quality dance training programme for young people aged 3-19, founded in 2008 by Director, Sarah Morgan. Classes take place weekly in Hexham and Haydon Bridge during term time and intensive courses and workshops take place in school holidays.

YDT offers students the chance to develop physical and expressive skills in weekly technique classes and creative workshops. YDT takes pride in creating opportunities for young people to receive high-quality training locally at an affordable rate. Performance opportunities are provided for all students in an annual show at Queen’s Hall Arts. Members of YDT also have additional opportunities throughout the year to be involved in regional dance platforms and perform curtain raisers for professional dance companies. YDT’s work has been recognised regionally and nationally when selected to represent the North East and the UK in One Dance UK’s national youth dance festival U Dance in 2013, 2015 and 2016. 
YDT offers full or half day workshops in schools for key stages 1-5 that can be tailored to meet the needs of the curriculum or inspired by one of the works in our current repertoire. In addition YDT can also provide continuing professional development sessions for teachers and support staff in schools. Contact Sarah Morgan to discuss a bespoke workshop or training package.

Since its inception in 2008, YDT has grown to have a big impact on the young people from the QEHS community. The core values which combine a nurturing approach with a focus on high quality dance are well established among the growing numbers of students who have been involved. Being a member of YDT is a transformational experience; students learn to develop their dance technique at the same time as being part of a very progressive company. I have seen them grow in confidence, self-esteem, skill and stature and, at the same time, they have developed a strong sense of mutual respect and teamwork.
