CHARGE Boys made their premiere performance on Saturday 14th March as they took part in COLLIDE 2020, a one-day dance event specifically for boys which was held in Leeds.
The boys performed ‘Lose Control’, a dance full of energy and strong dynamics choreographed by the CHARGE staff to showcase youth boys responding to music and losing control whenever they hear a beat.
Coordinated by NSCD’s Learning & Participation team with funding from Leeds Inspired, the city-wide event COLLIDE aimed to highlight the breadth of opportunities for male dancers within the community.
CHARGE Boys performed at three different venues across Leeds City Centre including Trinity, Victoria Gate and Briggate Lane, as well as participating in a workshop with Hawk Dance Theatre. This boys’ dance takeover of Leeds was an amazing opportunity for the CHARGE Boys to develop their performance skills and showcase their hard work.
