Youth Dance Makers Initiative

Creativity | Collaboration | Community

Youth Dance Makers Initiative strongly believes that young people posess ideas, skills and talent worth bringing to the fore. We strive to create a safe, inclusive and encouraging environment for young people to develop their creative, collaborative and expressive skills, connect with a diverse range of professional dance and interdisciplinary artists and expand perceptions of dance as an artform. We empower young people with the tools and confidence to voice their ideas and perspectives through choreography and performance making.

We are are based in Naarm/Melbourne on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people. We facilitate workshops, creative projects and opportunities for young artists interested in choreography, dance making and performance.
