Brewery Youth Dance
Opening doors for young people to the arts!
JOIN US & Get Moving!
Brewery Youth Dance (BYD) is fun, creative dance using all of the body and lots of imagination!
BYD is unique as it is dance for all ages and abilities, boys and girls, with lots of opportunities to take to the stage and perform (we do make use of our wonderful theatre here!). BYD helps you to learn and make your own moves with a contemporary style exploring contact, travel, floor work and technique to a variety of music with expressive and exciting choreography. There are also opportunities to work with visiting professional companies and through our BYA membership scheme to see selected professional Dance for half price!

BYD (Brewery Youth Dance)
Fun creative classes, where you and your friends are at the heart of the work you create. Lots of performance opportunities!
Classes focus on Contemporary technique, stretching, toning and most importantly choreography. Creating new work for performance is a main focus and the group have performed as part of the Lancashire Youth Dance Festival, South Lakes Dance Festival, Diwali Events, The Lowry and Sadler’s Wells in London (as well as on the Brewery Stage twice a year)!!
We also have 'moving and grooving, wriggling and giggling' classes for 18 months - six years and their parent/carers who enjoy movement play involving using props, bodies and imagination.
Start your creative journey with us! We will explore dance and art on alternative weeks in fun creative classes for you and your little one to move and make together.
We are firm believers that anyone and everyone can dance. We developed our ‘Mature Movers’ class for over 60’s last year and it is for those who simply enjoy moving to a variety of music. £4 pay as you go!
Please note: regular classes run during school term time only.
