Dance Journeys gives young people a unique opportunity to experience and contribute to new work.

Supported by John Lyon’s Charity, students from partner schools come together with ENBYouthCo to work with a professional choreographer, composer, young musicians from the Royal College of Music Juniors Department and members of English National Ballet Philharmonic to create a performance piece.

In 2017, young dancers from Copthall School, Friern Barnet School, Hammersmith Academy and Hampstead School created Dance Journeys: REFRESH\\RESET, inspired by our electrifying triple bill Bausch / Forsythe / Van Manen.

Dance Journeys to me is learning new skills, improving, and making new friends

It’s a really brilliant way for young people to come together, be inspired by each other, working together as a team and creating something beyond their wildest dreams
