About Kick Off

Kick Off is an all-male youth dance group in Leeds.

It started as a pilot project in 2016 run by Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD) and Dance Action Zone Leeds (DAZL). In 2017 Phoenix Dance Theatre and Leeds City College came on board as project partners.

Combining resources, the project now offers weekly classes, half-term intensives, performance opportunities and film projects for boys aged 11-18.

Since 2018, Kick Off has performed at:

  • NSCD’s Community Dance Platform
  • DAZL Morley Dance Show
  • Leeds City College Show
  • Phoenix Summer Youth Dance Platform
  • COLLIDE Boys Takeover Day, Leeds City Centre
  • Child Friendly Leeds Awards
  • Love Arts Festival at The Tetley

The main cohort is aged 11–18 years, with some older members from Leeds City College acting as mentors to the younger participants. Previous projects include ‘Painted Faces’, a piece focusing on mental health in young men, with support from Space 2 Leeds, and ‘#NoExit’ – collaboration with Health for All Leeds – Positive Futures.

"Kick Off is a great place...There's lots of people to make friends with and lots of different things you learn through dance" Kick Off Boys participant 2018
