Throughout Our Biennale, we identified emerging creative leaders in Kirklees. These Young Ambassadors helped us spread the word and shape our programme for the future.

Hi, I’m Adam and I have been a member of the Lawrence Batley Theatre Young Company for ten years. I often take part in shows at the LBT and completed a week of work experience there which involved going into schools and doing workshops for Our Brilliant Roadshow, which introduced young people to Our Biennale. I have a real passion for the arts and so was overjoyed to be asked to be a Young Ambassador. I think that through mediums such as theatre, film, music and art we have the capacity to create a better world or at least a more colourful one.

Hi, my name is Jahmiah Simpson and I am currently in year 10 at North Huddersfield Trust School. I have a huge passion for dance and I have been dancing since I was aged 1 and a half. I did ballet up until I was 7 and then from 7 years old I went onto do tap dancing, I also did street dancing at this point too. I then had a slight gap and at 13 years old I went back to do ballet for 6 months but at this point I began to discover my love for contemporary dance. Now I am 14 years I don't actually dance outside of school but I am wanting to find somewhere that I can dance to express myself and to progress in my dancing career. I do dance for one of my GCSE's at school where I focus mainly on contemporary while still using some ballet techniques.
In dance I focus mostly on expressing my emotions and also my past experiences when I perform. I use dance to express myself by using movements instead of words, I find this really works and I can let out anger or stress through performing. I have a huge passion for dance and I also use it as a way to let put all of my energy. I really hope to progress further in my dancing career and I am hoping to find a dance school to complete my work experience next year in May.
