Suffolk Youth Dance Company is aimed at experienced young dancers aged 16 to 20. Sessions focus on contemporary technique, creativity, choreographic and performance skills. Members have the opportunity to work with expert dance artists and choreographers, and are encouraged to explore creatively to build on technical abilities.

DanceEast will be running preparation classes leading up to the company audition, to give you the opportunity to refine your skills and to perform your best at the audition. Material taught in these preparatory classes may feature in the company audition, so I would strongly encourage you to attend as many of these as possible. It will also allow you to meet other potential company members and begin to feel comfortable working with each other.


All of these preparation classes and the audition will be free to attend, and will run from 11.00am – 1.00pm.

Saturday 7, Saturday 14 & Saturday 21 November: Technique & Creative class with Sarah Lewis

Saturday 28 November: Audition Prep with Katie Cambridge and Sarah Lewis

Saturday 5 December: Suffolk Youth Dance Company Audition


We would also IMG_0192like to introduce the new Artistic Director of Suffolk Youth Dance Company, Katie Cambridge…

Katie Cambridge trained at London Contemporary Dance School and graduated in 2009. Katie joined Tavaziva Dance as an apprentice in August 2009 and as a full time dancer in September 2010. She has danced, toured and taught for the company over the last five years. Since leaving Tavaziva Katie has worked as a freelance dancer for Mad Dogs Dance Theatre, Pagrav Dance, Divya Kasturi, ArtsCross, SmallPetitKlein and Moxie Brawl amount others. Katie has taught extensively throughout her career both in education and to professionals and was the Creative Director for Shuffle Youth Dance Company at The Place. More recently Katie took on the role as Dance Artist for Rosie Kay and New Arts Club creating work for their community casts. Katie is really excited about joining the team at Ipswich and looks forward to working with the Suffolk Youth Dancers on creating and developing work collaboratively.
