York Theatre Royal will be bursting with talented teenagers on Saturday 24 March when more than 300 of Yorkshire’s young choreographers and dancers come together to perform.

Featuring youth dance companies from every corner of Yorkshire, FRESH is Yorkshire Dance’s annual showcase of the region’s most talented young dancers. Yorkshire Dance champions the development of dance in Yorkshire and this year, 20 companies will perform to an audience of over 800 people.

East Riding’s very own Youth Dance County Company, LWHS and Hull Dance Youth Company are set to perform to an audience of more than 800 people.

Performing alongside the Youth Dance Company at the already sold out FRESH FRINGE are: Dance United Yorkshire; Hempland Tu-Tu Funky Dance; Soulz; Dance Stars Sheffield; RJC Dance Youth Company; Yorkshire Dance Street. The day will be packed full of workshops covering a range of dance styles.

The companies were selected by an independent panel of dance experts at smaller regional showcases around Yorkshire earlier this year, and from film submissions sent to Yorkshire Dance.

FRESH is part of U.Dance, a national celebration of performance by young people.
