Youth Dance Platform comes to Bedales

Academic & Curriculum

By Claire Gammon, Teacher in Charge of Dance

26 February sees the return of the well established Youth Dance Platform. Groups from the local and wider Hampshire community will perform alongside Bedales dance groups. The BAC group will perform and Alexander Siantiu (6.2) has made a piece with his ‘Crew’ – get your ear plugs ready! Charlie Raines OB, studying Dance at Bath University, is returning with a group of fellow students to perform and Hampshire Youth Dance will appear. It’s a great opportunity for students to see so many different forms of dance from commercial to hip-hop to contemporary dance all in one performance. Tickets (£5) are available from the Theatre on 01730 711511 or by emailing
