The LEGACY lads have had a busy year!

SATURDAY 27th May 2023 saw them performing at Norwich Theatre alongside some jaw-dropping and inspiring, internationally celebrated poppers, lockers, b-boys and b-girls in BREAKIN' CONVENTION, which celebrates 20 years of ground breaking Hip Hop Theatre!!

Quick on the heels of that performance - The entire LEGACY family from Mini's to Main Company came together with their very own show BROTHERHOOD at Norwich Playhouse on SUNDAY 18th JUNE.
This was one incredible show so if you were unlucky enough to miss it - the Show Download is available from the LEGACY Store.


We were so excited to be able to bring back our BOYS DAY OF DANCE for all the young men in our region who love to dance. They were treated to a day of exploring different dance styles and having loads of fun and meeting new friends.

These events are completely FREE to attend and are held at The Workshop Studios in school holidays

The day is open to all boys and young men aged 6-21 with an interest in dance, performing, athletic artistry and all the other great stuff LEGACY offers lads in our region.

Keep an eye out for our next one!

National Award Winners - Best Boys Programme

Cat and the LEGACY Company were the proud recipients of the Best Boys Programme Award at the UK's first Dance Business Awards held in Birmingham in August. 

LEGACY was chosen from Dance schools and studios across the UK as "a fabulous example of how to encourage and keep boys dancing. By giving boys who want to dance a home and a dance family where they truly belong, along with clear progressions through the age groups so the boys always have someone to aspire to."


The boys had a busy summer with outstanding performances at not one, not two but three local events.
They kept audiences entertained at the OVA Charity gig, wowed crowds over two days at the Costessey Fete & Fayre and finished the year with a last hoorah at Horsford Carnival
It was so good to be able to get out in front of local communities and promote not only the brilliant level of work the boys help create but to showcase their positions as role models to other boys and young men who may not know there's a home for them in Norwich.



The lads once again took home the crown of SENIOR REGIONAL CHAMPIONS at the 2022 "Can You Dance?" National touring convention. 
With a fun filled crazy composition of dance, acting, comedy and tricks, they raised the roof at the UEA Sportspark on 1st May 2022 leaving everyone smiling!


Along with our partners at The Workshop Studios, LEGACY hosted SUPER SUNDAY FUNDAY at Henderson Community Park.
After over a year of Covid-19 and all that came with it - We organised an outdoor day of fun, fresh air and fantastic performances for all to enjoy.
A huge thank you to the Henderson Trust and Norwich Opportunity Area for making it possible and to everyone who came out, supported our talented performers, and celebrated being together once again.

LEGACY were delighted to be invited by the Active Norfolk Awards to open the 2019 celebrations hosted by Becky Jago at OPEN Norwich. 

It was a fantastic night celebrating the people and organisations who are helping the people of Norfolk to achieve their best, improve their health and wellbeing through physical activity, and those who are achieving incredible things in sport.

This Valentine’s day, join Cinderella: A Museum Adventure for an exciting day of performances, talks, and workshops for all the family.

In conjunction with Matthew Bourne’s national tour of Cinderella, New Adventures’ dance artists have been collaborating with the young men of Legacy to create a brand-new piece of dance theatre. The creation will bring local heritage, histories and artefacts to life in pop-up performances under and amongst the planes in AirSpace at Duxford Imperial War Museum.

The dance performance is inspired by the role of young RAF airmen during the Battle of Britain, including their training, life at RAF Duxford and the role of the often unsung ground crew. 

Alternating with these dance performances will be interactive talks about the Lancaster bomber, which is on display in Duxford’s AirSpace. Plus, New Adventures will lead playful and creative dance workshops open to all ages and abilities where visitors can learn choreography from Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella and have the opportunity to create a little something of their own. (Workshop places must be booked in advance)

Performances will take place at: 11am, 12pm, 1:30pm & 3pm
To access all the day's activities, purchase General Admission tickets in advance from: Duxford Imperial War Museum
