Wiltshire Youth Arts Partnership (WYAP) has been running dance classes in Tidworth for over five years. In 2015 the class got a boost with some money from the Heritage Lottery Fund to be a part of a World War 1 project Dancing Back to 1914. Along with groups from all over Wiltshire they researched life in Wiltshire during WW1 and used this as a stimulus for several performances including a big celebration of the project at County Hall in March 2016.
With money from Tidworth’s area board we have been able to continue these dance classes beyond the project and we now have spaces for young people to join the group. They meet on a Thursday evening 5-6.30pm in the dance studio at Wellington Academy. The class is free and no previous dance experience is needed. At the moment the participants are having a go at difference dance styles and learning to choreograph their own pieces in the hope that they will be performing around Christmas time.
