Award Winning Dance Artist Designs Christmas Showcase
Community Black Achiever Award winning Nillanthie Morton choreographs sell-out show for Leeds-based RJC Dance
An inclusive black dance organisation will showcase the work of award-winning Nillanthie Morton and their youth provision at their popular Christmas show. The event takes place on Friday, 13th and Saturday, 14th December at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Chapeltown, Leeds.
Councillor Eileen Taylor, Leeds’ first black Lord Mayor, will join the sell-out crowd on Saturday 14th December and give a closing address. The performance celebrates the work of RJC Dance youth provision, a group aged between 9 and 19, who have worked on the routines throughout the year.
RJC Dance recently won three awards at the city’s Black Achievers Wings Awards, including an Arts Award for Morton, who started out in RJC Dance Youth Provision.
