National Youth Arts Wales

This is a temporary website while we develop a new brand and a new site due to go live in autumn 2018.

National Youth Arts Wales creates training, performance and development opportunities for Wales’ most talented actors, dancers, instrumentalists and singers. We do this through the six national youth arts ensembles:

  • National Youth Brass Band of Wales
  • National Youth Choir of Wales
  • National Youth Dance Wales
  • National Youth Orchestra of Wales
  • National Youth Theatre of Wales
  • National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales

In 2018, our participants will have the opportunity to work with internationally-renowned artists on residential courses led by some of Wales’ leading arts companies.

As well as providing these six national ensembles, we will also be developing programmes that will enable greater involvement and participation by young people across Wales. These will be aimed at young people who may not yet be ready for the national ensembles but, we hope, may be inspired to develop their talent and skills and give them confidence to apply in future years.
