Both our Beacon Youth Dance Company and Junior Youth Dance Company offer the perfect training platform for creatively adventurous young dancers looking to focus on their performance, contemporary dance technique and choreographic skills. This is a fantastic opportunity for those considering an education in dance as it gives young dancers access to professional companies who are in residence or on tour at the Beacon Arts Centre.

Thirty young people across the two companies created a magical performance of Alice in Wonderland which was performed on the main stage of Beacon Arts Centre on Saturday 28th October 2017 as part of the Galoshans Festival.

Previous Beacon Youth Dance Company’s performances include Love is a Burning Thing which was performed at Glasgow’s Theatre Royal for Go Dance 2014. They also presented their film installation work Old News at the Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival at Glasgow’s Tramway. They performed Fools Paradise at Destinations Dance Festival 2014 at Macrobert Arts Centre, Stirling and in April 2016, they opened for Scottish Dance Theatre with a brand new performance – Realms. In October 2016 they also performed DREAMLAND as part of Galoshans.
