Overdrive is a dance company for boys and young men aged 10-24 to become involved with dance. Through creative movement, the boys have a way to express themselves as well as improve health and wellbeing through physical movement. Overdrive is an open company for all boys interested in dance regardless of ability or experience. The vast age range of the company allows the members to learn from one another and offer peer support.
Independent dance artist, Hayley Earlam, leads workshops for the boys to attend with payments taken as a donation/pay-what-you-can in order to make workshops affordable and accessible for all. Together with the dancers, they create performances which boosts the dancers' confidence and creativity. The company has performed across a variety of community and youth dance platforms in Glasgow and was recently invited to perform at an event in Dundee.
