For the first time the community dance programme invites Primary School children in Years 5 and 6, as well as from11 to 18 years, to join.
A range of dance styles, from contemporary to urban dance, will be offered from week commencing 5 October 2015, aiming to provide young people with little or no previous dance experience with a fun, energetic and inspiring opportunity to develop both their dance technique and creative dance skills.
The sessions will focus on building strength and fitness along with the creation of an original piece of dance which will be performed at the biggest Youth Dance Platform in the area on Sunday 7 February 2016 at The Spa, Bridlington, alongside other invited guest companies.

The youth dance groups are taking place for 12 weeks in five areas of the East Riding:
