Hull dancers to take over Hull New Theatre

Dance groups from across Hull will take to the stage at Hull New Theatre this Sunday, for the first time.

Hull City Council’s Youth Arts Initiative Creative Voice will give young performers and choreographers a stage to showcase their talents on Sunday 2 February.

Groups from across Hull and the East Riding will be showcasing a wide-range of performances with everything from contemporary and street dancing, to Irish and Indian classical.

Ruth Drake, Hull City Council’s arts development officer, said: “The young people involved all enjoy dancing and are at difference stages in their dance journey.

“By taking part in Creative Voice Dance they are sharing and showcasing that the future of dance in our city and region is very promising as well as supporting their own individual development and progression.”

The evening will include a newly created piece by Hull Dance Youth Company, influenced by Hull Dance Prize winner Carla Morrill, as well as the best dance from Hull and the Yorkshire region.

The event will also feature a performance by Luke Gillingham at Space Dance Studio, who will soon partake in a national tour with Talent Hub, an innovative professional development programme for talented artists with learning difficulties, after being chosen to be part of a Tin Arts Dance Company project in 2017.

The event starts at 6.30pm. Tickets are £3 and can purchased from Hull City Council Box Office at Hull City Hall, by calling 01482 300 300 or visiting www.hulltheatres.co.uk/events.
