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.
Every style of dance is equally welcome – from streetdance to Kathak – and Yorkshire Dance is particularly keen to hear from inclusive groups of dancers, including young people with and without disabilities.
Youth groups performing will also be in with a chance of representing Yorkshire at the U.Dance National Festival, a national celebration of performance by young people taking place in Glasgow in July 2020.
We are no longer accepting applications for this year’s showcase.
The programme for the Main Stage is as follows:
Miss Eva Maria Kuriakose
