Wales produces amazing dancers, but they seldom have the opportunity to join dance companies based in Wales. The post-pandemic landscape has only served to amplify this longstanding inequity which means that there is a real risk that dancers at the beginning of their careers leave the industry before they even start.
We will lose a generation of Welsh talent unless we do something. Therefore, in a first for Wales, Rubicon’s response to this situation has been to create Rubicon Dance Company.
Rubicon Dance Company brings together 8 of the most exciting dancers in Wales and will cater for the huge appetite for high-quality dance that audiences feel invited to see.
This December at the Riverfront in Newport - Rubicon Dance’s brand new Graduate Company premieres a new and family-friendly production of the Christmas favourite, The Nutcracker.
