For over eight years the Memo Arts Centre has brought together schools, clubs and community groups from all over the Vale of Glamorgan to participate in an annual dance presentation.
Each year over 400 young children from local schools, after-school clubs, disability groups and community dance groups participate in Best Foot Forward at the Memo, performing to an audience of almost 800 parents, family and friends. Best Foot Forward is a wonderful opportunity for young people to perform in a live theatre, and gives teachers and dance leaders the opportunity to showcase the talent of the dance participants from the local area.
This year, we are proud to introduce Dance2Dance, our own resident contemporary youth dance group at the Memo, who will also be taking part.
More recently, for the past two years, we have worked together with Barry Town Council to present an annual Schools Christmas Concert, where 350 young pupils from schools in Barry take part in a festive carol carol and instrumental concert.
