Talented local dancers, actors, animators and singers will be taking to the stage for the Corby Youth Arts Slam this week.

The Slam showcases original work developed by young people at the weekly workshops Moves, Sparks, Clicks and Musical Theatre, which are part of the term-time Get Involved programme.

Moves, led by world-renowned B-boy Mickael ‘Marso’ Riviere, will be bringing high-energy hip-hop choreography to the performance.

Meanwhile, Sparks will be sharing their creative drama piece.

The group Clicks, led by Andy Eathorne, will be screening their animations throughout the evening, while the Musical Theatre group will be putting together a Disney meets The Wizard of Oz medley.

Creative project manager Lisa Byrne, who manages the Get Involved Programme and the Corby Youth Arts Slam, said she thinks audiences will enjoy the atmosphere.

She said: “The atmosphere at the Slams is always brilliant and we can’t wait to share this year’s show with audiences.

“We are so proud of all the young people in the Slam, how talented they are and the improvement they make each term.”

The Get Involved programme offers weekly sessions in dance, drama and digital arts, as well as week-long courses during the school holidays. At the end of each term, children and young people are given a public performance platform to share what they have learned.

The Corby Youth Arts Slam, at The Core at Corby Cube, will take place on Thursday, March 28, at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5 and can be booked by calling the ticket office on 01536 470470 or by visiting www.thecorecorby.com.
