Your chance to get up and dance!

East Riding Youth Dance is once again looking for young people to join their exciting community dance programme and audition for the East Riding Youth Dance County Company.

The dance programme is a fantastic opportunity for young people from Year 5 and upwards to engage in 12 weeks of community dance, including in Beverley. Participants will work closely with professional dance artists, providing a platform for those with little or no previous background i
n dance to have a fun, energetic and inspirational experience.

Those involved can expect to try a range of dance styles including contemporary and urban whilst developing their creative technique and dance skills.

As a part of the programme each group will contribute to the creation of an original dance piece to be performed at the biggest Youth Dance Platform in the area and showcase their development over the sessions. This platform is set to take over  Bridlington Spa on Sunday 21st January 2018.

Community Arts Officer June Mitchell said : “If you are looking for an enjoyable way to increase fitness and muscle tone; improve co-ordination, balance and posture; and are excited by the opportunity to learn creatively with specialist dance artists, then look no further.”

The youth dance groups are taking place for 12 weeks from w/c 25 September, in six areas of the East Riding, including at Beverley Memorial Hall on Tuesdays.

East Riding Youth Dance will also audition for talented dancers to join its very successful County Company.  Auditions will take place on Sunday 1st October and will offer participants exceptional opportunities working with some of the country’s top professionals.
