RJC Dance plays a vital role in making dance and the wider arts culture more accessible to our community. We passionately believe that all people should be able to take part in dance and the arts, regardless of their ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
To support our mission, we actively seek opportunities to engage with our local community here in Yorkshire. Below are the details of some projects we have recently undertaken that we’re especially proud of.
If you are an individual or an organisation with an idea that you’d like to collaborate on, we’d love to hear from you – get in touch!
In partnership with the Black Health Initiative our male youth dance group , Boyz Noize, created a new work that tackled the subject of knife crime and its impact on the community. The work is just a small part of a wider project with BHI that not only seeks to raise awareness of knife crime, but to celebrate those who have actively chosen an alternative life away from it.
The rural communities of Yorkshire have seen a decline in engagement with the arts, and so we were delighted to provide a cultural exchange with children and young people in North Yorkshire involved with Rural Arts to bring our touring performance of 'Still Blazin’ and Carnival Workshops to parts of this beautiful region.
