"It's really opened my eyes to contemporary, to different cultural influences and to use of body... I really can't condense the experience into words!"
Willa Faulkner CYDC16
"I can't find the words to express what my CYDC experience has meant to me - Kay as an inspiring strong woman, and mesmerising force of movement and Chhaya as a collective joy."
