BBC Young Dancer Finalist Performing at U.Dance 2015

2nd July 2015


We're excited to announce that BBC Young Dancer finalist Vidya Patel will be performing at U.Dance 2015 in Plymouth.

The only female finalist in the competition, Vidya represented South Asian dance with three Kathak pieces at the BBC Young Dancer Final at Sadler's Wells in May.

Vidya will be performing a 'Tarana' which is a technical piece in the Kathak repertoire, choreographed by Sujarta Banerjee and Luna Poddar. The piece explores the pure technicality of Kathak which includes fast footwork and pirouettes. This piece was learnt when Vidya went to India last year as part of her graduating year at CAT DanceXchange.

Catch Vidya and many other talented young dancers at the opening night performance of U.Dance 2015, Thursday 23 July at Theatre Royal Plymouth. Tickets are available through the Theatre Royal Plymouth website.
