Get Youth Dance
to U.Dance

Help us cover the costs of taking our Youth Dance and Youth Voices groups to Liverpool on 14 July for the U.Dance National Championships.


We need your help!

Our GCT Youth Dance company and Youth Voice Choir have made it to the UDance national finals in Liverpool, and will be representing not only our community but the whole of the North East at this prestigious event.  

When we realised it was going to cost over £10,000 to send the 20 performers and 15 supporters to Liverpool for the weekend, we knew that we would need your help to make that happen. 

If you can afford to donate to this fundraising campaign and would like to help us get to Liverpool, click on the link above and below.


Thank you so much for any support you can offer, and please share with your friends.

A unique group of young people and a unique performance.

Our Youth Dance Company, who last performed at U.Dance in 2022, is made up of young people with learning disabilities who have worked with us over the past couple of years through outreach work in local SEN schools. GCT Voices Youth Choir was started in September 2023, and is led by Chichi and Matti from Voices of Virtue Gospel Choir. Voices is made up of young people from local mainstream schools and they have come together with Youth Dance to perform a piece called 'Checkmate'.


Originally performed without the choir at Freedom Moving in 2023, Checkmate is set Depeche Mode's track 'Enjoy the Silence', which has since been arranged chorally by Chichi and Matti and sees GCT Voices sing the song while Youth Dance perform, with both groups on stage at the same time.


A true collaboration and merging of young people from different backgrounds and abilities creating something beautiful together. The very essence of what we wanted to achieve with Gosforth Civic Theatre when we opened the doors in 2016.

And performing it to a national audience at U.Dance is a huge opportunity for these young, talented performers, and you can play a huge part in helping us make it happen.
