YOUNGSTERS who want to dance are being invited to attend a summer course in Kirklees.

The Summer Dance Schools are being held at Newsome High School, Scissett Middle School, St John Fishers School in Dewsbury and Cleckheaton Boxing Club and Community Centre.

Open to 11 to 16-year-olds, each course will last for five days and costs £35.

Participants will learn short pieces in preparation for a final performance on Saturday, September 8.

The schools are running at dates between Monday, July 30, and Friday, August 24, at the different venues.

They are part of the Big Dance 2012, a series of Cultural Olympiad events in Kirklees, which aim to inspire people to take up dance activities.
