Classically Yours

Classically Yours is an award-winning long-term partnership project between Orchestras Live and East Riding of Yorkshire Council which aims to engage new audiences with orchestral music and provide new opportunities to access high-quality live orchestral music in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

We are delighted to be able to bring you more of the best UK orchestras including Sinfonia Viva, the Hallé Orchestra and Manchester Camerata.

Behind the scenes we’re working with early years, children, schools and care settings to share the joy live music brings.

East Riding Youth Dance

East Riding Youth Dance is an exciting and inspiring community dance programme within the East Riding for young people aged 8-18 years.

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 group's original dance piece.
