Youth Empowered StreetDANCE​


Marina has been successful in securing funding from partners:

Active Sussex, Lottery Community Fund, Sport England, Arts Council England and Brighton & Hove City Council to deliver our “outreach” programme Y.E.S (Youth Empowered by StreetDance), targeting young people from deprived areas of the city and in particular those that are in-active and not engaged by traditional sport, physical activity and dance. 

All of the above is only achievable with the wonderful support from volunteers, parents, community partners and fundraising activities. For which we are immensely grateful.
