Yorkshire Dance’s communications department (Antony & April) are delighted to announce that – for the duration of Juncture 2016 – they’re being swelled to a five-piece.
Mel McCabe, Fran Dowdall and Ellie Scott – or the Young Comms Team, as we’re going to call them – are among 23 dance students from Leeds Beckett University who, as an industry placement project, are helping to run Juncture.
While the other 20 are helping with project management, or shadowing artists Nicola Conibere and Lucy Suggate, the Young Comms Team will be taking over our social media, interviewing members of our audience and creating a steady stream of blog posts.
They’ll be capturing a real freshly-picked flavour of the festival for you – whether you’re with us in Leeds or not – writing about the performances, the atmosphere and their own very personal responses to what they’re experiencing.
We’re looking forward to welcoming Mel, Fran and Ellie to the team, and we hope you enjoy their work!
