Are you a young person interested in taking part in arts activity? Have a look at the opportunities below to find out how you can get involved.
Most Daisi arts activities are organised through schools and community groups. Why not set up your own arts activity? If you are interested contact us and we may be able to work with you to help you set up your own projects.

Devon Youth Dance Company
Devon Youth Dance Company provides an opportunity for young dancers aged between 12 and 18 to work with professional dance artists, create new work of the highest standard, and perform their work across the region. In addition to working with Artistic Director Rohanna Eade, last year's company had the opportunity to create a dance piece with Filip Van Huffell and Retina Youth Dance Company as well as Hannes Langolf from DV8.
This year the company members will get two days working with guest artist Racquel Meseguer, co-founder of Lost Dog who won the The Place prize in 2010. Performances will take place at Exeter Northcott Theatre, The Ariel Centre and as part of the U Dance Platform in Bournemouth.

3D A Chance to Dance
3D A Chance to Dance is an annual Devon-wide dance project. It's your chance to join a dance group with other keen dancers your age. 3D A Chance to Dance includes Devon Youth Dance Company (DYDC) and the Your Chance to Dance (YCtD) groups. You can find out about these by contacting Daisi or your school teacher.
3D also includes big performance days at professional theatres in Devon, where you can meet and share the dances you have created with other dancers age 4 to 19. Your family and friends can join the audience! All schools in Devon are also invited to bring a dance to one of these performance days.
