SHOWCASE the Street are three months into the newly created dance post which was created with funding from Young Start run by the Big Lottery Fund.

And now Jenna Cooper who holds the post is looking for more young people to become involved.

The scheme offers young people aged 14 to 17 the chance to be taken through the United Dance Organisation’s new street dance syllabus, learning all different styles from hip hop to house dancing.

The new project has already been running in areas such as Arbroath, and young people are asked to sign up by simply completing the contact page on the charities website at or by getting in touch with Jenna through her e-mail at

Fergus Storrier, who is one of the charity’s trustees said: “It was great to receive the support of the Young Start Programme and from that point Jenna has already been quick to develop this new project.

“Our aim as well as taking young people through the new syllabus is also to create tutors so it’s an exciting time for the young people who take part.

“The United Dance Organisation are a highly respected organisation in the street dance world and will host the World Street Dance Championships at the SECC in Glasgow next year.”
