More Information on Fresh 2017

Fresh 2017 (a part of U.Dance) is a breath-taking celebration of the achievements of our region’s young dancers.

Experience an amazing range of dance styles as the very finest youth dance companies from across Yorkshire compete for an extraordinary prize.

A panel of judges will select two groups to represent Yorkshire at U.Dance 2017, Youth Dance England’s flagship event, staged this year at Birmingham Hippodrome in July.

As well as the performances taking place on the stage of the Quarry Theatre, there will be a ‘fringe’ programme of performances over at Yorkshire Dance from 5.30pm.

Yorkshire Dance is delighted to bring this annual youth dance showcase back to West Yorkshire Playhouse for the seventh time.
