Signatures Youth Dance Trail

PERFORMANCE START TIMES: 1pm, 2.15pm, 3.30pm

There will be 3 Signatures youth dance trails around the Lowry on 10th July. Please note that the start times above are correct, please be aware that there is a misprint of start times in the UDance brochure & flyer.

Important Travel Information: On Sunday 10th July, Skyride will be taking place in the area. This will mean that there are a number of road closures. Also please note that there are no trams running to Eccles or Media City until August and whilst there are replacement bus services running, there will be diversions due to Skyride. Please allow extra time for your journey to the Lowry. Please note we aim to start each trail promptly and will not be able to wait for late comers. See the links below for further travel advice.

Dance Manchester’s annual youth dance showcase takes on a new format this year as part of the UDance National Festival. Signatures, made up of Derby High School, Falinge Park High School, Wright Robinson College, Delusion Dance Company,  Flixton Girls School, MCR Creative & Media Academy, Rivington & Blackrod High School, Leigh Youth Dance Company & Twenty 10 will perform the Signatures Youth Dance Trail, gravitating to spaces around The Lowry as opposed to the usual setting of a stage.

Stellarium is Dance Manchester & The University of Manchester’s new youth dance performance project bringing the arts and science together through dance. The choreography is based on the knowledge of leading astrophysicists, Dr Rowan Smith & Dr Helen Mason on the subject of how stars are formed and ‘our star’, the Sun. This has then been interpreted into movement by Greater Manchester based choreographer, Bridget Fiske.

Signatures Youth Dance Trail is a performance where the audience follow the performers around the building. Due to the range of spaces used, there may be restricted views at times.

See Signatures Youth Dance Trail for free at The Lowry, tomorrow.

Trails at: 1.00, 2.15 & 3.30pm
