Talent House opening, 2022

This year we’re dropping the mic with a music and dance youth-led hip hop project. 

Throughout the week, young aspiring musicians and dancers have the opportunity to learn from each other, exchange ideas, and collectively produce performances to captivate an invited audience on the Friday evening, as they share the stage with local freestyle artists to showcase their talent.

This innovative collaboration between two powerhouse arts organisations will not only support the young participants to embrace their individuality but also aims to foster a strong sense of unity and collaboration. 

By combining the rhythmic beats and infectious sounds of hip-hop with the artistry and fluid movements of dance, the project will create a dynamic and energising platform for self-expression and creativity, allowing young participants to discover new ways to showcase their talent and passion, whilst smashing societal barriers.

Click HERE NOW to register and don’t miss this free week-long music & dance collaboration! Deadline to apply: 1st August 2023.
