Each year National Dance Company Wales welcomes applications from youth dance groups across Wales to perform alongside the National Dance Company Wales Associates in the Youth Dance Night. This year the four groups selected to perform alongside the NDCWales Associates are County Youth Dance Company from Swansea; Fantasy Feet Dance Academy from Merthyr Tydfil; Expressions from Pontypridd and Monmouth Youth Dance Company Juniors. The event will see over 60 young people aged between 6-22 perform in the Dance House, in the Wales Millennium Centre complex.
Louise Prosser from Expressions Dance Associate who meet at the Muni Arts Centre in Pontpridd said, “I’m very pleased to be one of the groups selected for the performance - we’re all looking forward to it. Expressions Associate dancers from Artis Community are delighted to be part of the Youth Dance Platform 2015.

Every year I am touched by the sensitive artistry and exuberant physicality of these dedicated young dancers.
