Spark Youth Dance Company Inc. is a dance initiative driven entirely by young people under the age of twenty-five.
We strive to spark a passion for the creative process in the next generation of artistic leaders by providing the opportunity for a team of young people to create both short and full-length dance works.
Spark is a non-profit incorporated association led by Artistic Director Alex Dellaportas and supported by a committee and a new team of young creatives each year.
In its inaugural year, Spark produced an original contemporary dance interpretation of The Nutcracker set during WW1 that performed at the Frankston Arts Centre in September 2016, with guest artist Daniel Gaudiello.
Our vision is to provide a place where young people can express themselves through both creation and performance and to give youth a safe space to have their voices heard as young artists.
