Callout for LYDC Participants





Lothian Youth Dance Company (LYDC) is Dance Base’s in-house youth dance company for dancers aged 14-21 years. Dance Base is holding workshop auditions this summer to build the next group of company dancers. We will be running two 2-hour workshop auditions for interested dancers to get a taste of the company work. After these two workshop auditions, Dance Base will select a group of young people that will join us from September 2022 – June 2023.

If you are interested in gaining new skills and confidence in dance technique and performance, come along to our workshop audition to be considered. The workshop audition will cover a contemporary technique class and some creative/choreography tasks. There will also be a chance to ask questions and to find out if LYDC might be something for you.

BOOK NOW for a spot in this free workshop audition. You only need to attend one workshop audition.
