Young people aged 15-25 can participate in a 6 month project involving Acrobatics, Hip hop/Breakdance and Performance skills.
The G Force Project has been developed by the Edinburgh Mela and Bright Night International working in partnership with Muirhouse Youth Development Group and is supported by Cashback for Communities. The 15-25 year old participants will have the opportunity to join an intensive training programme culminating in a performance onstage at the Mela’s World Dance Feste tent , at the heart of the 2013 Edinburgh Mela programme. G Force will develop the skills and confidence of young people in North Edinburgh , giving them the chance to work with some of the best dancers and performers in Scotland and enhancing their opportunities for progression. Participants will be given opportunities to progress onto further learning, training and personal development, through existing connections to local organisations and practitioners.
