Macrobert Youth Dance Company (MYDC) was originally formed in 1996 and has developed a reputation for high quality, original, contemporary dance work. The group have toured extensively throughout Scotland, often collaborating with other youth dance companies.

With a focus on performance, the goal of the young company is to support participants to develop their dance technique, understand what it takes to be part of a dance company and perform at key dance events.


Some of our youth company members have shown an interest in learning about and developing skills in creative criticism for performance.  With support from our drama artist Daniel Livingston, they've experiences a selection of the productions at Macrobert Arts Centre and shared their thoughts, ideas and responses to these in writing.
