East Riding Youth Dance (ERYD) term has had to be shortened by three weeks because of the government restrictions currently in place, and the Platform event that should have taken place at Bridlington Spa at the end of April has had to be cancelled.
However, all the young dancers have been invited to submit video clips from home so that East Riding Youth Dance can create a snapshot of each of its group performances and build a digital platform to showcase the work that dancers have created this term. The videos will be published online next month via the East Riding Youth Dance social media platforms.
Alongside this, East Riding Youth Dance are working with their artists to run weekly sessions via the Facebook page and Instagram - they are pre-recorded but open to anyone to get involved and have a dance. They are not limited to ERYD participants. Members of the community can get involved and get moving from their homes during this period of isolation.
The sessions are typically 30 minutes, broken down into sections with warm ups, exercises, dance sequences and a cool down. Each week will take on a new artist and incorporate their style and approach to dance.
Lauren Frost of East Riding Youth Dance said : "Our aim is to inspire people to move and come together as a community, with the focus that, although we are temporarily separated due to isolation, we can come together and create something inspiring and artistic. We are also encouraging people of all ages to join in and highlight that dance is indeed for everybody."
The sessions can be viewed via the Facebook/Instagram pages and also on the new website www.ActiveEastRiding.co.uk which links to the facebook pages.
