‘Prostep’ find their talent at the Citadel Arts Centre

A group of young people from across St Helens successfully devised, performed and produced Street Life, a performing arts showcase at the Citadel Arts Centre.

18th February 2010

 

   
The show was developed through ‘Prostep’, a creative arts programme for young people aged 16-19 as part of Liverpool City Region’s Find Your Talent programme. 
The group created their own event management company, MDM Productions (Merseyside Dance & Music).  Working with experts from the creative arts industry the young people developed their business and performance skills and were involved in every aspect of the project from concept to completion. 
The evening featured contemporary street dance and a varied music programme as well as a presentation on their achievements. The free event was backed by Cancer Research UK and the team also ran a raffle to raise funds for the charity.  
Prostep is a bespoke and intensive twelve-week course tailored to the individual needs and interests of young people not in education or employment (NEET), recruited from Parr, Clock Face, Thatto Heath and Sutton areas of St Helens. Fay Lamb, Chief Executive of The Citadel said:
“The young people involved in the pro step project have worked very hard over the past twelve weeks and have proved their dedication, commitment and talent. Street life was a great opportunity for them to showcase their talents and I am incredibly proud of what they have achieved.” 
The programme was run in partnership with the Citadel Arts Centre, Multi Activity Pilot Project (MAPP) at St Helens Youth Service, Helena Partnerships, Connexions, St Helens Chamber and Young Enterprise North West.
