Why We Exist...

We believe that young people's creativity has no limits or restrictions

How we do the Why...

You can't be what you can't see.

A young person should encounter endless different creative outlets and opportunities to help find the best way to express themselves. Without financial, social or cultural barriers.

What ReBels do...

We provide project focussed training groups that allow young people to experience and develop with mutiple artforms and styles, while focussing on one production or performance. We listen to our young people to find out what they want - if we don't already cover subjects or artforms they want that's how we find out and develop with and for them.


In order to ensure our young people are still able to engage with activities and their Practitioners we have launched B-Hive which is an online resource featuring videos of tutorials, challenges and activities suitable for all involved with Performance Training classes (as well as others who might just want to create or move while they are in isolation)
