Work experience student Kye shares his dancing journey so far...


About three years ago my little brother and I entered the talent show at a holiday park (as a joke!) We hadn’t rehearsed or practiced for this, and freestyled the whole thing.

We won AND got a standing ovation.

From then on I’ve been training myself to dance because I felt I found something special.

At home, I train by putting music on and adapting myself to the music using my own style. My style is a cross between street, hip hop with a little piece of me and who I am. I have never actually taken a dance class in my life!


Work experience at Déda:

I am now 15 and about to do my GCSEs at Littleover Community School but sadly can’t do dance for my GCSEs, so when I found out from my teacher that I could do my work experience at Déda I was outstandingly happy because I knew this could kick start my new journey.

Before my work experience, I knew little of what Déda was and the only thing I knew was it was something to do with the creative arts.

At Déda I have been learning about marketing, doing my Bronze Arts Award and taking part in classes like Hip Hop Youth, Contemporary and Ballet. Doing these classes has shown me different styles of dance that hopefully I can use and combine with my own style. Also doing classes has inspired me and shown me things like making my moves bigger and using facial expression to show my emotions.

During my time at Déda, I have enjoyed learning about the marketing department and how every message is put across. It was interesting to see how you have to think of everything first, for example; what colours, text and pictures you use to get to the right target audience for the classes or performances you are trying to sell.

Where I want to go in the future:

Coming to Déda has been an amazing opportunity for me as there is nowhere like it in Derby and it is a brilliant place to come and learn dance.

"At Déda, I have met new people and learned new styles of dance and attended classes that have inspired me to carry on with my dancing journey and see where dance takes me."

If you’re a dancer or want to learn how to dance or even if you feel like watching a performance, I recommend coming to Déda!!!

Even though I have only been here a week, I will miss being in the office and the studios at Déda.
