Actor, dancer, and member of The Company, Bethany Smith, took to the Déda stage once again in April as part of Interface, the recent U.Dance platform.

U.Dance is a national programme of events offering high quality dance opportunities for young people and each year, it offers a platform to young dancers looking to develop their experience of professional performance in front of an audience.

Bethany has been developing her dance practice for several years now and choreographed and performed her latest solo piece for the regional stages of U.Dance, organised by FABRIC in partnership with Déda.

In order to qualify, Bethany had to create a dance which was then filmed and submitted with an application to take part. Her performance was then judged by a panel of dance specialists who selected ten performers for the evening’s performance.

Bethany has now been shortlisted for the next stage and is in with a chance of selection for the National platform taking place in Liverpool later this year.
