Barking Dagenham Youth Dance - BDYD Leaders

BDYD target and work with marginalised young people and give them the voice and confidence to break down any social or economic barriers and enable them to maximise their capabilities and have control over their lives.

The idea is an extension programme to an existing highly successful weekend dance programme that takes place every Saturday at the Abbey Leisure Centre over 36 weeks. Stage 1 will be to kick-start an idea to train and mentor young leaders to then take over project after year 1 to deliver dance to participants. They aim to encourage a wide range of participants to be involved including those who are experiencing disproportionate threats to their well-being, those in low-income families, BAME, disabled young people, refugee and asylum-seeking young people and those in care. 
This will culminate in Stage 2, with young people planning and delivering their own community event to showcase their progress. 
BDYD aim to help via this programme for young people to secure the essential knowledge, skills and understanding to becoming well-rounded citizens.
