COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR MULTI-STRAND –
RJC Dance is a culturally diverse community dance organisation offering a breadth of opportunities. They engage with children, young people and adults from all backgrounds and offer an authentic experience that focuses on how dance can unlock their potential, their creativity and style. This dynamic organisation is based in the Inner North East wedge of the City at the Mandela Centre, in the heart of Chapeltown Leeds, the top 10% of the most deprived areas in the UK (according to the Government’s Index of Multiple Deprivation). Young people in this area need positive activities, alternatives to crime, choices and opportunities to build their skills set, confidence and self-esteem. Since 1993 over 20,000 diverse young people have engaged with the organisations work, and over 200 diverse young people attend weekly RJC Dance sessions at the Mandela Centre.
