From Barnsley to Bridlington, both the Senior and Junior youth dance companies travelled to The Spa in Bridlington on Sunday 5th February to perform at the East Riding Youth Dance Platform, which was such an amazing event. A huge thank you to June Mitchell and Dawn Holgate for inviting us which is becoming an annual event on the company tour schedule.
After our tech rehearsal it was straight into the all important bow/finale workshop run by the amazing East Riding dance artists. It was great to see our young people interacting and working with the other youth groups that were attending the platform also.
First up to perform in the first half of the show was the Senior Dance Company, they were ready to wow the audience with the very colourful and powerful performance of PRIDE! They came out and showcased the highs and lows of young LGBT peoples lives in today’s society.
After the interval it was time for the Junior Dance Company to perform their intense and emotional piece of work around young people and mental health. The girls showed maturity within their performance whilst showcasing amazing technique and connection to the theme.
The show finished with a high energy bow/finale dance where each group who performed in the platform came back on to have a little dance all together and say one final thank you to the audience. Everyone who performed that evening was brilliant. It is always a great pleasure for DAZL to be involved in the platform. Thanks again East Riding Youth
