Young dance talent on display at FRESH event

FRESH young people's dance event
FRESH 2020 line-up announced by Yorkshire Dance.

Hull New Theatre is set to host the FRESH dance festival for the first time later this month.

The line-up for FRESH 2020 has now been finalised with young dancers from across Yorkshire ready to display their extraordinary talents at the event on Saturday, 28 March.

Judges from Yorkshire Dance have spent months scouring the region for new and exciting work and are now delighted to announce they have selected the groups who will be performing at this year’s showcase. 

Yorkshire Dance’s Youth and Community Manager Sarah Lyon said: “We’re excited to be bringing such outstanding young dancers to Hull and to celebrate the great dance scene that Hull has to offer. 

“This will be the first time that many of the participants perform on a professional stage, and we’re delighted to be able to support them as they develop their skills further.” 

FRESH is an annual showcase of high quality youth dance from across Yorkshire and is part of One Dance UK’s U.Dance National Festival.

This dynamic night of entertainment will feature the next generation of performers and choreographers demonstrating beautiful movement in a range of dance styles. 

After a sell-out show in 2019, Yorkshire Dance will bring FRESH to Hull College and Hull New Theatre for the first time. 

Tickets are on sale now. Book at the Hull City Hall Box Office, call 01482 300 306 or visit to book online.
