Tuckshop Dance Theatre provide a creative platform for youth voice, to inspire and to empower children and young people to make positive life choices. Our work uses dance, digital media and a range of artistic disciplines to communicate and to explore issues of young people's concern. We provide a safe space for children and young people to discover who they are and what they want to say to the world. Our performance work is often comical, entertaining, emotional, uplifting and physical.
Our engagement nurtures young people's health and well- being, boosts confidence and self- esteem, develops thriving citizens and future young creatives. We take our performance work to zoos, amusement parks, youth centres, out door spaces, theatres, museums, libraries, schools, colleges and online.
