Empowered Youth Sustaining the YES Project in Crawley

Saturday 2nd December was a day to remember as the talented and dedicated young people of Crawley took centre stage, creating a Winter Showcase that will undoubtedly be etched in the community’s memory. The event not only showcased their exceptional dance skills but also marked a significant step forward in continuing the rich legacy of dance in Crawley.

An extra special thank you to our youth voice group who have worked really hard on making this show happen, helping us set up the venue and raising extra funds for the Y.E.S project with their delicious bake sale! 🧁

Thank you to everyone who came to watch. With your support our young people will be able to keep on dancing…

Crawley Community Youth Service went above and beyond to support us with the venue and lead up to the event. 🌟

A remarkable achievement: the young people’s collective efforts resulted in raising an impressive £865, ensuring that the Y.E.S Project can continue in Crawley and engage the community in physical activity. 

The Y.E.S Project brings exciting and engaging Dance sessions and opportunities across Sussex.

DanceHub CIC has been successful in securing funding from Arts Council England (ACE), Active Sussex, National Lottery, Crawley Borough Council, Hastings Borough Council, Police Crime Commissioner, Postcode Society Trust and Sussex Community Foundation to deliver our large scale outreach programme: The Y.E.S Project (Youth Empowered by StreetDance).

These partnerships allow us to set up Community Y.E.S Projects where we target young people from deprived or difficult circumstances, particularly those who are inactive and not engaged by traditional sport or physical activity. 

Alongside our Community Y.E.S Projects, we’re established in various schools where we support in-school and after school enrichment activities where students learn fun new moves with the opportunity to work towards performance projects such as Let’s Dance. 

The sessions are delivered by our dynamic team of experienced and professional teachers who also support young people with their leadership skills, confidence and wellbeing.

The Y.E.S Project goes one step further with supporting leadership through providing a pathway for its students to attend DanceHub’s delivery of the Leadership Skills Foundation Course. In this course young people have the opportunity to receive a qualification that enables successful learners to gain a range of skills that will enable them to assist to lead purposeful and enjoyable dance activity sessions, under indirect supervision.

Stay tuned to our social media channels in the coming weeks for glimpses of the showcase. If you haven’t already, there’s still time to contribute to our Crowdfunder and support these fantastic young talents.
