Young Artists Collective

Siobhan Davies Dance Young Artists Collective is a peer network and youth advisory group made up of 54 artists who have completed our Next Choreography course. 

Through monthly meetings members of the group input into Siobhan Davies Dance's artistic programme, discuss industry movements and opportunities, share their own work with their peers, get practical knowledge from a guest speakers and organise their own events.

YAC is a skill swap, SDD staff offer areas of specialism (including project management, budgets, marketing, fundraising) and the Young Artist Collective offer their input, feedback and artistic vision enabling us to establish a programme designed by and for young people.

For more information or find out how you can get involved please contact

  4. We critically engage with current industry movements, perspectives and opportunities
