Monmouthshire Youth Dance Company
MYDC is Dance Blast's flagship youth contemporary dance company. Set up in 2007, MYDC supports and nurtures young, talented dancers in the Monmouthshire area. It provides opportunities for young dancers with an interest in contemporary dance to develop key dance and performance skills through weekly sessions, master classes and performance possibilities.
Dance Blast recognises that many who first join MYDC have little or no previous experience of contemporary dance, their dance experience may be in other dance styles such as ballet, modern or street dance, this is no problem.
Many members go on to study dance at university and become members of National Dance Company of Wales Associates.
There are three strands of MYDC for young people aged 8-25 years.
MYDC meet every Wednesday.
Access is through try out class, audition or as a progression route from one of Dance Blast’s open access groups.
The Intermediate and Advanced groups also meet bi-weekly on Saturdays and during the Autumn and Spring half terms.
