A dynamic contemporary ballet company
Under the artistic direction of Yolande Yorke-Edgell, Yorke Dance Project is a dynamic contemporary ballet company rooted in tradition while dancing our way into the future.
Formed in Los Angeles in 1998 before relocating to the UK in 2009, the hallmark of YDP’s unique programming is our commitment to presenting immaculately re-constructed classics alongside premieres by both established and emerging choreographers. We combine each of our productions with dynamic outreach activities to engage, inform and inspire the public.
The company’s compellingly, athletic dancers at the peak of their creative powers are joined by guest artists from the Royal Ballet, the Martha Graham Company and celebrated, London-based freelance artists.
