Tacchi-Morris hosts U.Dance Regional Platform

26 March 2014

Tacchi-Morris hosted the annual U.Dance platform for young people as part of Spring Forward, a festival of performance coordinated by Take Art.

U.Dance, the Regional Youth Dance Platform was held at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre as part of Spring Forward Festival 2014 - an event celebrating and showcasing excellence in youth dance (in all forms and styles) from across the region. U.Dance proved a fantastic opportunity for groups from across the South West to come together to share their work and their creative ideas.  It was also a great chance for young people to meet other creatives who share the same enthusiasm and passion for dance. The event was supported and funded by Pavilion Dance South West.

Hosted over four days and evenings Spring Forward featured an incredibly inspiring range of dancers from across Somerset and the South West, giving these young performers an opportunity to test out their skills on a professional stage. From youth dance companies to schools, from hip-hop to contemporary this festival, marking 10 years of Spring Forward, also featured original groups who have performed over the last decade.

The Festival enabled young people to perform on a professional stage, participate in workshops and watch professional dance shows and more. Over the course of the four days the centre hosted over 80 dance performances and hundreds of young people took to the stage.
