We are delighted to announce that our Youth Engagement Officer and Choreographer Dan Carr has been awarded the Jack Petchey Leader Award at KYDS. The Jack Petchey Leader Award is a way of recognising leaders that motivate, inspire and encourage young people.

Dan was chosen to receive the Leader Award for 2016 by a vote of all of our youth members. Some of the comments submitted about Dan are below:

He’s always encouraging everyone and understands all of the members.

He puts a lot of time, effort and patience into choreographing the dances for the shows in his spare time.

He is always really helpful and takes time to go through things with us if we don’t understand what we are doing. He makes things fun. 

Congratulations Dan and thank you for all of your hard work at KYDS.

If you think you have what it takes to encourage, inspire and motivate young people, why not consider joining us as a volunteer?
