What is LYDC?
Lothian Youth Dance Company (LYDC) is Dance Base’s in-house youth dance company. Each year a group of young dancers meet regularly to train, create and perform together. Company members come from different backgrounds but share a common love and interest for dance and performance that they explore with each other over the course of one year.
