East Riding Youth Dance is looking to recruit new dancers to join its community dance programme, and also East Riding Youth Dance County Company.

The community dance programme is aimed at young people from Year 5 upwards.

A range of dance styles, from contemporary to urban dance, will be offered at a range of venues, including Woldgate College, from week commencing 27 February.

It aims to provide young people with little or no previous dance experience, 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 11 June at Bridlington Spa.

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.”
