Springboard Project Artist

About Yvette

Yvette Owen-Salmon is a hip hop based dance artist with a passion for teaching and dance film.  She trained in hip hop from a young age and is currently branching out and exploring different styles such as contemporary and Afrobeats.

Since committing to dance last year, she’s had the incredible opportunity to perform at the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2022, become a member of Marshon Dance and take part in early career dance projects with ACE Dance and Music and Black Country Dance Hub.

She is currently a freelance dance teacher, teaching regularly for Danceforce Wolves and giving workshops for organisations such as ConnectEd. She is also exploring dance film and developing as a freelance videographer.

One of her goals as a creative is to explore and grow in as many avenues as possible, both behind the scenes and on-stage, and to remain a student. Whenever she does anything, she wants it to be authentic and genuine, and she believes the best way to achieve that is to always keep learning.

Springboard is a programme for entrepreneurial, early career artists delivered by ACE Dance and Music and supported with investment from Dance Hub Birmingham.
