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
