Led by Shaun Dillon, members of Boys United are given the opportunity to improve technique and develop choreographic skills in a fun and energetic male-only environment. Boys United projects often involve cross-disciplinary exploration of dance and film, as well as working with a range of styles, along with contemporary dance.
In February 2018 Boys United performed at the U.Dance Regional Platform at the University of Bedfordshire. The group were then selected to perform at the U.Dance National Festival at the Jerwood DanceHouse in July 2018.
The group work towards their Bronze or Silver Arts Award over the year and have the opportunity to work with guest artists. This year Boys United worked with DanceEast Associate Artist Joseph Toonga to look at Hip Hop techniques.
No previous dance experience is necessary, but enthusiasm and commitment is a must!
