Young people ready to Step Live!!

Nineteen dance groups from mainstream and SEN secondary schools across the capital will be performing at Step LIVE! 2014 - London’s biggest celebration of youth dance, taking place at Sadler’s Wells Theatre on Saturday 5th July.

The event will feature over 350 young performers who all receive specialist dance education thanks to the Step into Dance programme. It is the culmination of a year of hard work and a fantastic opportunity for young dancers to take to such a big stage.

Following a series of nine London-wide Borough Events, groups who showed the most promise and talent were invited to auditions across the capital. Lambeth Academy were one of the groups to impress with an energetic street piece choreographed by their Step into Dance teacher, Kevin Young. Kevin said of the achievement, “The students have worked incredibly hard with focus and dedication. They make me feel so proud.”

The group from Lambeth Academy, who performed outside a local supermarket to raise money for costumes, will join eighteen other school groups from the Step into Dance programme performing at Step LIVE! 2014. Also performing will be the three Step into Dance Youth Companies, showcasing the very best of the programme’s promising young talent.

Sue Goodman, Step into Dance Artistic and Programme Director, is looking forward to a spectacular show, “All the dancers have improved so much, they are looking very professional. They will set the Sadler’s Wells stage ablaze with their energy, enthusiasm and talent”.

Tickets to Step LIVE! 2014 are available from www.sadlerswells.com or via the Box Office on 0844 412 4300. Prices start at £8 and groups of 8+ are eligible for a 20% group discount.
