The Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust are working with Archbishop Sentamu Academy to launch the brand-new initiative encouraging young people across the region to get active and take part in an exciting new dance competition.
Called Dance Raw, the project is aimed at schools, colleges and dance groups across East Yorkshire and aims to promote a healthy lifestyle and bring the community together through dance. Aiming to take dance back to its roots, it will get underway in October and each group taking part will create their choreography for their own eight-minute performance, select and record the music for their soundtrack, and design and make their sets and costumes with only the small budget specified.
What is more important is the message behind the dance, which can be based on any dance style. Contemporary, hip-hop, street, ballet, jazz, or a combination of all dance styles, the choice is yours. Groups will then perform in front of their families and members of the local community with judges deciding which groups progress to the “Super Dance League” and compete for the chance to perform in front of thousands of people.
Amelia Lowis, Dance Development Officer for the Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust, said: “The Challenge is for students and their teachers to create and be involved with a concept that is not about money, costumes and dance experience but about teamwork and having fun. We want people to take part in Dance Raw because they have a love of dance and enjoy performing and competing. Each group will choose a theme that reflects their local community and strip things back to the essentials. It’s all about dance in its purest form, it’s all about the buzz and it’s all about Dance Raw!”
Dance Raw will be officially launched to local dance groups, primary schools and secondary schools across Hull in October 2015.
