Troy Boyz West
30 FREE PLACES FOR NEET YOUNG PEOPLE (not in education employment or training)
Bringing the ancient tale of Homer’s Iliad into the 21st Century through street dance and percussion in the magical setting of The Bishop’s Palace, St. David’s.
Troy Boyz West is a mighty big summer opportunity for 60 young people to live and work with a team of professional artists during an exciting week of dance action. The week long residency at Celtic Camping will culminate in 2 explosive and energetic performances in the stunning open air setting of The Bishop’s Palace in St Davids on Saturday 22nd August.
Troy Boyz West is funded by Bluestone Foundation, Arts & Business Culture Step, and Arts Care Gofal Celf to offer 30 bursary places for young people not in education employment or training (NEET) giving a once in a lifetime opportunity for young people in West Wales to work with members of the Troy Boyz company established 3 years ago as a result of a highly acclaimed performance project.
Many of the NEETS who joined the first Troy Boyz project are now in employment or education, proof that engaging in creative dance strengthens ambition, promotes confidence, self esteem and a sense of belonging.
