Boys' Dance Takeover

What is COLLIDE?

Led by Northern School of Contemporary Dance and held every two years, COLLIDE is a free one-day boys’ dance event. A host of professional companies and community dance groups from across the North come to Leeds to share their passion with audiences on the street.

Young men have been under-represented in community dance classes for too long and NSCD want to change this.

On the day there are numerous opportunities to watch and participate in dance activity. Passers-by can experience a range of dance styles from hip-hop to contemporary, and from ballet to street, performed by all-male companies.
