Audience member Sunderland College premiere about Elephant dances.
Last night… what a night! What an evening of total dedication to art, choreography, dance and performance…. and what a terrific and huge step on and up from Fertile Ground’s first year of activities. Everyone should hopefully be feeling incredibly proud – I know I was for all of you.

I am consistently inspired by the dedication and quality of the young dancers who join our company each year. We are indeed, the fertile ground for talent in the North East. I’m more sure than ever that we are sowing the seeds for a generation of inspirational performers who will go on to make their own work, form their own company’s and really make the North East ‘the place’ to dance in the UK. Dora Frankel, Artistic Director.

Our dancers become inspirational, dedicated and professional role models for young people in the many schools, colleges and community groups to whom we offer workshops
Without the support of our generous patrons and partners we would be unable to offer this unique opportunity to the best of our North East dance talent.

You can help us to continue nurturing and improving opportunities for young people across the region by sponsoring a young dance graduate, supporting an education provider to run our workshops for their students or contributing to the running of our annual tours and public events programme.
