Commonwealth Youth Exchange
As Glasgow moves nearer to hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games, we have formed a group of exceptional young dancers aged 15 – 25 who have the potential to play a future role in the dance education sector.
The group, who meet weekly at Scottish Ballet, visited Singapore for two weeks in July where they shared their cultures, skills and experiences with a group of young dancers from School of the Arts, Singapore and The Human Expression Dance Company.
Following the visit, the group continue to learn a wide range of skills in preparation for hosting the Singapore group in 2014 and also follow their own personal development plans. July 2014 will see both Glasgow and Singapore groups form an ensemble cast, when they perform a new dance piece by Kerry Nicholls at the Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival 2014, Tramway theatre.
