NOW RECRUITING FOR 30 ENTHUSIASTIC DRUMMERS AND DANCERS AGED 13-18 TO CREATE A HEAD-TURNING PERCUSSION AND DANCE OUTFIT



Shock

In the summer of 2013 we applied for funding to realise their dream of developing a youth performance collective. Later that same summer,  we received the good news that Arts Council England loved the sound of the project, and offered support to help ‘Jubacana’ come to life!

Following over a decade of development and delivery within both school and community arts programmes, Director Holly Prest is thrilled to embark on this brand new youth-led adventure for young drummers and dancers.

“Children are capable, surprising, inspiring. I’m proud to offer a platform where they can shine, and encourage others to do the same. Teenagers have something raw about them that shouldn’t be tamed or controlled, but harnessed. I first held a drumstick at age 12. When it’s weight fell on that drum for the first time, everything changed. I didn’t understand what was happening, but as I practised week after week, month after month, I knew something inside was changing. I fell in love with music, and am privileged to give others that same opportunity to get lost in something they can treasure forever.”
