About Young Creatives

Young Creatives is a free national programme managed by One Dance UK. As part of the programme, young choreographers will benefit from the opportunity to attend online workshops with industry professionals with the end goal of creating a final dance work. 

The programme includes sessions on the creative process with professional choreographers and for 2021 included workshops with screendance experts as they developed short dance films.

The young choreographers have worked with Lead Mentor Sarah Dowling (Company Wayne McGregor, The Royal Ballet, Cats film) who will support them as a collective to create a dance work, from the initial idea through to a finished product.
