A ‘talent development’ initiative for aspiring young choreographers and dancers is being launched across the Midlands this month. 

Xzibit Young Creatives is an artist-led hip-hop dance-theatre project that focuses on developing the young creatives of the future through an intensive choreographic mentoring programme.

The sessions will take place over 12 weeks from January 2022. The young choreographers and dancers will have their work showcased at the end of this at Lakeside Arts, Nottingham and the Patrick Centre, Birmingham in April 2022. Shorter intensive projects will also take place in Lincoln, Corby, Leicester, Derby and Coventry between April and July 2022, where young creators and dancers can also apply to take part.  

Applications for the free project open on Monday 1 November (closing on the 26th), with young people aged between 11 and 19 eligible to apply. To find out more, visit: xzibityoungcreatives.com
