Yorkshire Youth Dance Platform

We are proud to annually deliver youth dance platforms as part of our commitment to provide performance opportunities and raise aspirations of young people. We invite the very best of local, regional and national talents to the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre to present their work in front of an audience of up to 230 guests.

The Yorkshire Youth Dance Platform event brings together over 20 performing groups from across Yorkshire to celebrate the skill, talent and creativity of young dancers across the region.

Due to the expansion of our provisions, we are excited to have extended our 2024 event to run across two evenings Thursday 7 March and Friday 8 March 19:30-20:30.
