ACE Youth, ACE dance and music’s youth company and feeder strand for the professional company, have been invited to take part in a worldwide celebration of dance which will be live streamed throughout the day on Friday 5th April. BBC Arts have organised a dance festival ‘#DancePassion’ in collaboration with One Dance UK and some of the nation’s leading companies and exciting upcoming talent.
The festival takes place from Sunday 31st March to Saturday 6th April 2019 and the live stream broadcasts will be from a number of dance ‘hubs’ across the UK in Belfast, Birmingham, Leeds, London and Swansea. This gives an insight into what rehearsals are really like behind-the-scenes footage and not forgetting high quality performance pieces.
On the 5th April at Birmingham DanceXchange, ACE Youth will be performing their piece ‘State of Mind’, choregraphed by Douglas Thorpe, as part of the festival and are thrilled to be a part of this platform. It will give them a well-deserved opportunity to showcase their talent on a global scale and give them the confidence to utilise the skills they have learnt along the way.
