Youth Dance Company

We are excited that the Youth Dance Company will be entering a new chapter from January 2020.

Building on our successful partnership with Jasmin Vardimon Company and to ensure the future sustainability of the group, Jasmin Vardimon Educational Company will be taking over the co-ordination and running of the Youth Dance Company. The sessions will commence in January as the Jasmin Vardimon Youth Company at the Jasmin Vardimon Pop Up Space based at the Ashford Designer Outlet.  For any enquiries or further information about the Jasmin Vardimon Youth Company, please email: We look forward to hosting future performances by the Company at Gulbenkian.

"I just quickly wanted to say thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be able to take part in something like this, this has been an amazing experience and I hope it continues next term!.. Thanks again, this has made me so, so happy!" Youth Dance Company member
"To be learning within this environment this closely with a company is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in as it gives you the chance to learn so much and shows you’re eager to learn and take on new things. Being a part of this gives us amazing opportunities to perform in such amazing things such as doing the curtain raiser for JV2." Natalie YDC Member
"Our daughter has really found her talent for dance through opportunities at Gulbenkian. Thankyou for all of your support” YDC Parent


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
