Search on for dancing talent

A COMPANY is on the look out for young talented dancers who want to take their dance skills to a new level.

The East Riding Youth Dance County Company, formed in 2007, is set to hold auditions in the new year for young people aged 14 to 18.

Company members will work under the direction of professional dance artists to achieve excellence in dance. Members have recently performed as part of Fresh 2012, the Olympic torch relay and a unique Big Dance performance on the beach in Bridlington.

Next year the company will have the opportunity to work with Richard Alston Dance Company and perform as a curtain-raiser in the rural touring programme alongside Phoenix Dance Theatre.

Auditions will be held on Sunday 6 January at Woldgate College in Pocklington, with rehearsals taking place on Sundays from 11.30am to 3.30pm throughout the year.

The group meets every fortnight and regularly represent the East Riding at local, regional and national performance events.
