MKDT Youth Company
Milton Keynes Dance Theatre are delighted to present
our brand new 'Youth Company'!
Featuring a selection of young dancers from our local area performing a range of MKDT repertoire new and old!
For our Autumn Gala our dancers are raising money for 'The Brain Tumour Charity' and for 'The MKDT Support Fund'.
The Brain Tumour Charity
The Vision is for a world where Brain Tumours are defeated!
Your brain is the most extraordinary part of your body. It's responsible for your ability to move and to communicate. It controls your emotions and stores your memories. It's the part of you that makes you, who you are.
Yet, 102,000 people are currently living with a brain tumour and the impact can be devastating. Research into brain tumours is woefully underfunded. Survival rates are just 11% and treatments haven't changed in 40 years.
We know progress isn't happening fast enough. We need to do more, if we're going to find a cure. And we need to do it now. That's why we're investing in more forward-thinking research, more specialist support services, and passionately lobbying for more urgent change.
We're committed to improving life for everyone affected and to defending the most incredible part of the human body.
Brain tumours strike fast. But we believe that with your continued commitment and support, we can be the generation that stops them – right in their tracks.
We won't stop until we have.
Double survival by 2025
Halve the harm that brain tumours have on quality of life by 2020
Our values underpin our culture, the way we do things and what we believe in. We are pioneering, passionate, collaborative and smart.
The MKDT Support Fund
Help the next Generation of Young Dancers!
MK Dance Theatre Support Fund!
All donations made will be used to create scholarships for young dancers to participate in our future workshops, summer schools & productions.
Whilst we aim to make all of our events accessible by pricing them as affordably as possible we are still acutely aware that for some this may not be enough. We have been delighted to provide scholarships for young dancers to participate in both of our previous productions and we would love to be able to continue providing as much access to the arts as we can for all aspiring young performers.
If you would like to make a donation please contact us at:
