Youth Graduate Company

ME Youth Graduate Performance company is for females aged 13 - 25 and based in the Black Country

Our aim is to train the dancers of the future to be strong and diverse, by teaching foundations in the Martha Graham Contraction and Release Technique, infused with different styles. As well as providing a vast number of performance experiences, both in theatre and site specific spaces.

The training programme is taught by Marcia Edwards, with visiting guest artists, making sure they have a foundation in a range of different teaching practices.

So far we have ran workshops with Graham of Europe, Cecilia Griffith of Conception Dance Theatre (Grenada), Nii Tete Yartey of NOYAM/Ghanaian National Dance Ensemble and Kate Taylor.

Training takes place every Saturday at Central Library, West Bromwich 10:30-13:30
316 High St, West Bromwich B70 8DZ

The Youth Graduate Performance Company goes beyond traditional dance training...

It also focuses on allowing dancers to explore their own creative side, developing and perfecting their performance skills.

As the training progresses we prepare the dancers for working as employed or freelance artists by having visiting lecturers talk to the dancers about tax, self-employment, funding, fair pay and workplace safety and rights.

Our aim is to have a Youth and Graduate Performance Company that is aware of the work that goes on behind the scene’s in a theatre, including learning about lighting, costume, sets and stage direction.

Graduate Opportunities

ME Dance Company is also partnered with De Montfort University offering a paid internship scheme to DMU Dance Graduates to work with the company. The internship spans over a six week period and us as a company offer opportunities to train within the professional company, as well as learn about working behind the scenes with admin, application writing, planning and more.
The scheme is individual to each graduate, so if there is anything you want to learn about or know, ME Dance Company can provide you with as much knowledge as you desire.

We also have an apprentice and work experience programme for Youth and Graduate dancers who want to improve their knowledge in the professional dance industry.
