BREAK-DANCING, beat-boxing, and scratch DJing were just some of the fun on offer when a youth arts company showcased its work.

Halifax-based social enterprise Outta Place has been working with youth clubs across Calderdale and beyond for a year and has recently branched out into schools.

It exhibited its educational offerings at Riverside Junior School, Hebden Bridge, where it has been working since January.

Clare Donegan, company director, said: “One year on from the company’s inception, Outta Place felt it was high time that their urban, creative and technological programmes were made available as after-school clubs, one-off workshops and bespoke projects.”

She added: “This relatively new facet to the company will allow Outta Place to reach many more young people who are at the core of their work, nurturing cohesive communities throughout the Calder Valley and beyond.”
