Testimonials from BYA members & their families:

“The best part of my week! Without BYT I would never have been this inspired to pursue a career in performing arts and I am forever grateful for such wonderful opportunities!”  Young woman who went on to study physical theatre

“The brewery is a special place one where those taking part can really feel a sense of belonging”  Father of young man attending boys dance classes

“Other students on my course can’t believe I have seen so many amazing companies and taken workshops with them... I didn’t even realise how lucky we are in Kendal to have somewhere like the Brewery for young people to indulge in the arts in the way we do, giving us opportunities to perform all over the UK as well as regular performances in the Brewery’s home theatre.” Young man from BYD who went on to study contemporary dance

“Since starting with BYT I have settled into England a lot better. Coming from Germany I get teased a lot at school but no one has ever teased me in BYT.”  Young woman new to the area

“Fireworks bursting from my heart. Exploding, painting a story on the stage. So long to prepare so short to perform. But guess what? It’s worth it.” Young woman from BYD on what dance means to her

“Drama was the one thing I looked forward to over the last few weeks, knowing I could come to BYT and be myself and have fun!”  Young woman currently involved with BYT
