U.Dance Gala :: RISE Youth Dance

RISE Youth Dance is a Bristol-based dance company that gives young people experience of the professional dance world. Although we specialise in contemporary technique, we also do other styles to give members a range of experiences. We push the dance technique but its also important for us to give them skills in teaching practice, management and leadership.

RISE successfully got through to the national U.Dance gala in Leeds 2013. We are currently trying to raise as much money as we can as it costs £4000. We are representing the South West at this event and its seen as the biggest youth dance festival in the UK so we are extremely honoured. Many of our young people can’t afford the full fees so we are trying to find any contribution that will go to our food, travel, accommodation and workshop costs. During the weekend, RISE will perform and watch others. They will take part in workshops with professionals dancers and meet established artists in the dance world.

We are doing bag packing at Tesco and other fundraising activities to raise the amount. If we could be considered for the Spoon Fed fund then that would be greatly appreciated.
