    Swaledale's Diversity Trip

    Diversity Dance Troop Inspire Swaledale Young People


    Swaledale Youth Club has recently made dreams come true by taking 8 members to see Diversity perform their new tour ‘Genesis’ at Newcastle’s Metro Arena. It is the clubs first trip since opening less than 1 year ago and it was a great success. The group enjoyed going out for lunch, visiting the Angel of the North monument before watching some breath taking dancing by Diversity who won Britain’s got Talent back in 2009. Seth Baron, a young person who attended the trip said “Best day ever! Amazing performance and loved every second of it with amazing people. Sacha Cole added “I'm so glad I went it was AMAZING! The performance was amazing and has a good time with the people that went”.

    The clubs runs every other Thursday at Reeth Memorial Hall, 6:30pm – 8:30pm for young people aged 11 – 16 and is free of charge. There are lots of fun activities to get involved in which change each session and space to relax and socialise. The club is in need of a couple of new adult volunteers to help run sessions and ensure it continues its good work. As the club is affiliated to North Yorkshire Youth, a local youth association, funded by North Yorkshire County Council to support community youth provision, all volunteers will receive ongoing support and training.
