Associate Artist


Joanna Young is Dance Blast’s  first Associate Artist.


Jo has been connected with Dance Blast for many years, joining as a participant at the age of 12.  Over the years we have  supported her throughout her training and her professional career. Her first full length production Recreating Pengwyn was created at the Dance Centre in Autumn 2012.


“I can safely say that without my initial introduction to dance through Dance Blast and the ongoing support from Emma and Sally Carlson I would not be where I am now or had the opportunities I have had” Joanna Young

Through our Associate programme we aim to support dance artists at an important time in their development, enabling them to focus on their creative practice.
