FRESH is our annual showcase of high quality youth dance from across Yorkshire.

FRESH 2023 is on 14 – 15 April.

FRESH offers an exciting opportunity for youth dance groups, schools and individual young people to perform on a professional stage. Youth dance companies from every corner of Yorkshire, with members aged between 11 and 19, are invited to submit applications to perform live or to have their dance-film screened. A full day’s programme of workshops in a wide range of different dance styles, led by professional dancers, culminates with an evening of performances of the youth companies’ own dance pieces, to audiences of hundreds of dance-lovers.

You can expect high quality dance routines showcasing anything from street dance to Bharatanatyam (and everything in between). 

FRESH is part of the national U.Dance Festival. Some of the youth groups who perform in FRESH will go on to perform at U.Dance 2023 which takes place in Newcastle.

Watch our highlights from previous years!

Fresh is free to take part in and open to any style of dance from groups aged 11-19 (25 for any young person with additional needs or a disability) from Yorkshire.
