The Sussex Youth Dance Company

SYDC is a dance company for talented and enthusiastic young dancers, based in Sussex and headed up by professional dancer and teacher, Katie Ahmed.

SYDC is for boys and girls (aged 12 to 17) who love to dance a variety of styles and perform in a professional and inspiring environment. To be a part of SYDC, the young dancers need to be currently taking classes at Grade 5 level or above in Ballet and/or Modern. The company will experience working together as a team as well as individually, and will have the opportunity to enhance their performance skills whilst improving their dance technique, musicality and style.


The company will not interfere with regular term time classes as all rehearsals and performances will be in the school holidays and/or at weekends.


Kevan AllenA message from our patron, Kevan Allen, Choreographer and Artistic Director...

"I believe that a solid grounded all round training is essential for a career in dance. Be adaptable and mould-able to whatever choreography is thrown at you whilst bringing your own personality to the craft."
