Cando2 Youth Dance Company


Cando2 is Candoco’s youth dance performance company for disabled and non-disabled dancers aged 13-25. Cando2 provides young dancers with an opportunity to create high quality work with Candoco Artists and guest choreographers and perform at venues and festivals across the UK.

We run two classes each week during term time:

Mondays, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
Trinity Laban, The Laban Building, Creekside, London SE8 3DZ
Taught by Candoco Artists Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot and Kimberley Harvey
£5 per class / £65 for the 13 week term
Book your place: Email Ellie Douglas-Allan or call 020 7704 6845

Tuesdays, 6pm – 8pm
The Place, 17 Flaxman Terrace, London WC1H 9AT
Taught by Candoco Artists Sarah Blanc and Kitty Fedorec
£90 for the 13 week term
Book your place: www.theplace.org.uk or call 020 7121 1100

My favourite thing about the classes is the way that we all feel really comfortable with each other even though we meet up for 2 hours a week. This encourages me to dance more openly and take advantage of lots of opportunities

Dancers attending classes are given the opportunity to perform as part of Cando2, Candoco’s youth dance company.

Previous performances have included Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival at Tramway in Glasgow, ReFresh at The Place, Co-Motion at Trinity Laban, U.Dance London at Southbank Centre and Yael Flexer’s Anniversary Sharings at The Place studios. In December 2014, Cando2 opened Candoco Dance Company's double bill Playing Another at the Queen Elizabeth Hall for the first time.
