Our hip-hop youth dance company redXco have been selected to perform at a National Dance festival in Plymouth! The North Hykeham-based group are the first ever dance company from Lincolnshire to be selected to take part in U.Dance, a yearly event run by Youth Dance England which celebrates and showcases the best youth dance work from across the country.
After winning the Lincolnshire finals of the competition the dance company went on to impress judges with their routine at the East Midlands stage that took place in Nottingham last month. Although narrowly missing out on winning the competition, the judges selected redXco as one of the ‘Wild Card’ groups to participate in the festival.
redXco will be taking part in U. Dance festival 2015, at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth between Wednesday 22 – Saturday 25th July. As well as performing on stage at the Theatre Royal the group will benefit from classes and workshops with nationally renowned artists to help them develop their own dance skills and introduce them to new creative ideas.
Emma Terzza, artsNK Community Dance Artist said:
‘The artsNK Dance Team are very proud of the group, they have worked extremely hard to get where they are today. redXco are the first group from Lincolnshire to perform at a U. Dance National event which is a massive achievement.’
