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.

We work with the National Centre for Early Music and musicians across the East Riding to make music with hundreds of young people across the East Riding. Each year we celebrate the amazing work they've created at Let's Rock, a big gig at Bridlington Spa, this year we went online. You can view the concert on YouTube.
