Dance Showcase 2019

A partnership between Sparc and Elite Dance Academy.

What is Sparc?

We are a Youth Arts project in Rhondda Cynon Taff. We work together & learn from each other. From the moment we enter the room we begin a journey of creativity, discovery & growth.

The Sparc team is an integral part of the community development work at Valleys Kids and we work with young people in a variety of settings.

Using creative techniques the children and young people explore different areas of their lives and the lives of others in a positive way.
