Youth Platform

The Cascade Youth Platform is a performance opportunity for young people aged 11 - 19 years in the South East. Hosted by Cascade, the platform takes place every year at the K College Tonbridge in West Kent.

The platform is open to schools, youth groups, community groups, dance companies, and individuals in the South East, welcoming all abilities and styles of dance.

In previous years, the platform has received funding & support from Youth Dance England, Kent County Council through the new recipes programme, Youth Opportunities and The Arts Investment Fund. The platform has also been supported and funded by South East Dance through Big Dance 2012 South East England. All of this support has enabled Cascade to provide a vibrant and high quality event every year.

The Youth Platform was an excellent opportunity for our students to demonstrate their talent, gain performance experience and learn new skills . Not only did our students love performing, they also thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and meeting new friends with common interests. Thank you Cascade!
