What’s it like to be in Yama?
Yama has a busy schedule of rehearsals and performances throughout term time. It’s a member led group, so dancers play a key role in the success and smooth running of the group. While being part of Yama is no small commitment, it can be a very rewarding experience:
Yama has brought me into a new social circle and allowed me to express myself both as an individual and in collaboration with others
Through devising performances, I have had to reach deep into personal experience and memory, which has been richly rewarding
