In October 2017, Spark Youth Dance Company Inc. will be premiering a brand new full-length contemporary dance work about the Suffragettes; created and directed entirely by youth under 25.
Our dance company is unique.
In 2016, we were founded by a passionate 18-year-old who just wanted a place to create and explore dance and provide a dance company experience for the dancers of the Mornington Peninsula.
Every aspect of the company – the choreography, costuming, music, lighting, photography, videography, admin, marketing and more – is directed and organised entirely by children, teenagers and young adults aged under 25.
We are non-profit and all our young people are volunteers – so, we need the help of incredible people like you to fund our main work for 2017.
Our full-length work, premiering October at Frankston Arts Centre, focuses on the British Suffragettes and their violent journey to gaining the vote.
Your donation won’t just help fund our costumes, sets and orchestra. It will also allow young kids to find their passions in the arts and take on real leadership positions whilst working on a real production.
In 2017, we are introducing the role of Music Director – a role that will see a young person organise and learn to conduct a professional orchestra.
You will be supporting the kids that will become arts lovers and supporters themselves. The kids who may find their passion in choreography or costume design and go on to bring beautiful art to this world through theatre.
You will be helping us create the next generation of artistic leaders.
Welcome to the Spark family; we can’t wait to share our new work with you!
