Inspiring Young People Through Dance

Dance Leaders:

Dance Leaders at the TR14ers are young people who have emerged through dedication and passion and host peer led Workshops every week. The Leaders are trained by Sean Chilman (A previous TR14ers member and Leader, who is now a fully qualified Instructor) and Becci Gowers (Founder and Director of Dance Confidence Cornwall and original member of Flava from Britains Got Talent). The Dance Leaders have direct ownership of the project as they consult with the members and feedback to the Board of Directors and Trustees, of which 62% are under 25 and all have been Dance Leaders. On reaching 15 Dance Leaders are invited onto our trainee director programme which includes the opportunity to attend a National Citizenship Service residential summer camp. When they are 16 they are invited to become registered directors and trustees of the charity.


The TR14ers has in excess of 120 members aged between 5 - 18 years and on average 60 attend free Street and Hip Hop dance workshops every week.


Workshops, Gigs and Dance:

We hold Dance Workshops for young people aged between 5yrs and 18yrs every Friday evening at Wesley Chapel,(TR14ers is not a church group),Chapel Street Camborne, from 4.30pm - 6.30pm with later sessions for Dance leaders to practice. We also hod dance days in school hiolidays and the children work towards dance qualifications. Young people with their own children are very welcome. A small creche is provided in the same room as the dance workshops.

At the Dance Workshops the Mentors and Dance Leaders teach the members new routines that they have choreographed at their weekly training sessions. They also practice routines that they already know and have a Dance-Factor and Showcase from invited guests to round off the day……..Excellent Fun!!!

We get invited to showcase our routines at loads of different community events, conferences and forums and we also give private tuition classes. If you would like to book the TR14ers or find out more information on classes please contact Becci on 07854 329849 or email gowers.becci@gmail.com.
