Following on from the fantastic success of Fresh 2011, Yorkshire Dance is working with Youth Dance England for a second year to organise Fresh 2012 – an outstanding showcase for the finest youth dance groups from Yorkshire and the Humber.
Featuring a range of fantastic pieces and dance styles as diverse as street dance and hip hop to Bollywood and contemporary dance, Fresh 2012 will celebrate the achievements of the region’s young dancers.
East Riding Youth Dance County Company has been chosen to perform at the spectacular showcase that presents the most talented local dancers on Saturday 17th March at West Yorkshire Playhouse Leeds. They will be performing their piece 'All Because,' choreographed by their artistic director Dawn Holgate. 'All Because' is a piece about relationships and the emotions we feel that inevitably affect and sometimes destroy the friendships that we build. The company explored a range of circumstances that often affect our relationship with others: love, jealousy, trust, passion, paranoia, manipulation, envy, fear...
An elite panel of judges will select one group to represent Yorkshire at U.Dance England 2012, Youth Dance England’s flagship event taking place this July at the Southbank Centre in London.
Alongside the performances on stage, youth dance companies will also be performing in the theatre foyer and at Yorkshire Dance, next door on Quarry Hill.
Yorkshire Dance received over 30 applications from companies wanting to have the chance to dance on stage and managed to narrow it down to nine.
