of the 2019 Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival. The partnership will further allow us to make the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival an amazing experience for children and young people and to promote, develop and celebrate dance in schools and wider community settings.
Yorkshire Education Recruitment have been firm supporters of the event for the past two years. They've helped us to extend the YSDF network and offer additional projects and activities. Over those two years we've seen the number of schools, colleges and groups taking part double. 2019 will once again see two packed weekends of performances from across the region. Around 1200 young dancers performing to a total audience of over 3000 people. All ages, all abilities, all styles.
This year will see Yorkshire Education's involvement and investment develop still further with some exciting plans in place. Registered schools will have the chance to win a visit and workshop from a professional choreographer and be able to access a range of special offers. The Yorkshire Education team will be dropping in on rehearsals and sharing the successes along the way.
Yorkshire Education is an education recruitment agency providing secondary, primary, SEN schools and nurseries with temporary supply teaching and permanent staffing solutions. Based in York, they work closely with schools in the City and with schools across the rest of Yorkshire including the East Riding and North Yorkshire.
“Yorkshire Education are delighted to be the lead sponsor for the Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival. We have been involved with the festival for the past few years, it is a fantastic event to be part of and is a great initiative to promote performing arts and dance within schools.”
Joe Butcher, Managing Director, Yorkshire Education Recruitment
"We've been hugely appreciative of the support from the Yorkshire Education team. They've been proactive in promoting the event to their network of schools and we've been able to extend professional development opportunities to their supply staff. This year's partnership will offer even more exciting opportunities."
