RISE is the original group of the company, which started in 2008 and is primarily lead by RISE Director Helen Wilson. To be a part of this division, dancers must be 13 to 18 years old and attend an audition held in September every year. RISE days consist of a variation of classes, workshops and preparations for the many performances RISE takes part in. 

If dancers are aged 16 or above they may choose to audition for the RISE Performance Group. Members have the opportunity to receive more advanced training, attend additional workshops and perform at national events such as UDance.

For more information please contact Helen at rise.ydc@googlemail.com

 
As well as pushing my growth as a dancer, RISE has been a constant place for me at times when I needed it and a special home where I had the freedom to explore the depths of movement, myself and others. I realised how fortunate I was to have a teacher like Helen that channels such humble values yet remarkable skills into young people. She has demonstrated to me and to others a glimpse of what it takes to be the best version of yourself in this industry and life.
