The Y.E.S Project brings exciting and engaging charity funded Street Dance sessions and opportunities across Sussex. In our weekly sessions students learn fun new moves with the opportunity to work towards performance projects.

The sessions are taught by our dynamic team of professional young choreographers.

We also provide dance leadership opportunities and courses for young people to learn and become young dance leaders. To find out more about these programmes please click here to contact Jade for more details.

We provide free online Y.E.S Project tutorials which can be accessed via DanceHub TV.

We believe Continuing Professional Development is extremely important for our team so that we can promote the education, development and wellbeing of people and communities, through their active participation in and opportunities through Dance. Ultimately, it will benefit your experience at Marina Studios to ensure everyone feels in a safe space when dancing with us. 

Throughout the next few months and into next year, there is going to be a plethora of inspiring development opportunities for our team to expand their teaching practice, a few examples below;

  • Partnership with Stopgap Dance for delivery adaption
  • Mental Health Training 
  • Disability Equality Training through Scope

Marina Studios Foundation is the “front facing name” for Brighton Marina Studios, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) founded in 2013 with aims to provide an extensive and quality timetable of classes to the entire dance community across the south east and to work hard to bring opportunities to people of all ages from difficult or deprived circumstances, who would not otherwise be able to access these activities.
