 ‘Transit’ was about raising aspirations, enhancing confidence and providing an effective pathway towards a more rewarding life for young people, based on the discipline of a professional contemporary dancer.   During Spring 2010, we worked with a wide variety of referral partners to deliver a contemporary dance project based at the Wycombe Swan Theatre in High Wycombe.   14 young people from a diverse range of referral partners, including Buckinghamshire Youth Offending Service, Connexions, The Beaconsfield School, Wycombe Social Care and The Grange PRU, attended 7 days of workshops to produce a piece which was performed on the main stage of the Wycombe Swan Theatre.

The work was delivered by experienced dance artists Maria Ryan and Helen Parlor with the support of JumpStartMove (www.jumpstartmove.co.uk).  We have produced a dvd – if you would like a copy, please contact
