Company Chameleon is Manchester’s only producing and touring dance company and they are the Lowry’s resident company.

Over the years the Youth Dance Ambassadors have had a really good working relationship with the company. One of the most memorable experiences was back in 2011 when they were rehearsing for “Gameshow” their current tour at the time.

The YDA were fortunate enough to be granted access to a rehearsal so we could watch them putting the show together. We then got to have dinner with them and interview them. Over the years we have been granted access to a rehearsal each time they are creating a new piece which has been a great privilege.

I always come away from the rehearsals with a smile. The dancers are all really friendly down to earth guys; they are so passionate about dance and the company which they have created. Every show they create is different and they continuously push their boundaries which makes them a very exciting company to go watch as you never know what they are going to come up with next.

Beauty of The Beast is a story of hostility and about people deal when confronted with it. Once again Company Chameleon are pushing boundaries and Beauty of The Beast looks set to be the most exciting chapter in their story so far.
