SAY - the album: skool edition. Dancers Sarah Golding (STOMP, Ballet Boyz) and Yukiko Masui (So You Think You Can Dance) created the album: skool edition for The Place Playground Tour 2021. The work celebrates the joy and innocence of making up dances to popular music. They worked with music artists, and combined dynamic contemporary styles to create a slick and playful performance.

"The dance was exciting!
I didn’t know dance could be like that that!"
- Audience Feedback

SAY was born from Sarah Golding and Yukiko Masui’s ambition to challenge the classicist norm that often lies in the contemporary dance sector and to find again the innocence in creativity that can sometimes get lost through formal training. Creating fast-paced and slick contemporary dance routine on underground music, Sarah and Yuki’s energy is infectious!
