Discover, enjoy and take part in range of orchestral music activities in East Riding. Over the next eighteen months we're delighted to be able to bring you some of the best UK orchestras including Manchester Camerata, Sinfonia Viva and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Each orchestra brings a distinctive style but all have a passion for sharing great music with more people.
Performing in Beverley, Bridlington, Pocklington and Withernsea as well as some of the more out of the way places across East Riding, there will be special concerts for children, families and older people and opportunities for community groups to work with orchestras to compose music and perform with them.Search events
East Riding Youth Dance
East Riding Youth Dance is an exciting and inspiring community dance programme within the East Riding for young people aged 9 - 18.
We run weekly sessions in a 10 week programme where participants work closely with professional dance artists, providing a platform for those with little or no previous background in dance to have a fun, energetic and engaging experience.
Participants can grab their dancing shoes and try a range of dance styles including contemporary and street dance whilst developing their creative technique and dance skills.
A highlight of the programme is our annual Platform event, the biggest youth dance platform in the area; where participants can showcase their development across the sessions and their contribution to the groups original dance piece.Visit the ERYD website
