Explore Dance Day

Saturday 3 August (+ 10th August to gain Explore Arts Award)
Join us for a jam-packed adventurous day of dance for young people aged 7 - 11 years. We will spend the day dancing and grooving all around the building, being inspired by the galleries and exhibitions and creating a performance piece to be shared at the end of the day.

You will learn new dance moves, create some of your own and learn about artists and art on display at the Harris.


Explore Arts Award
Alongside this, young people have the chance to gain an Explore Arts Award, an accredited qualification recognising their achievements.

Visit Preston Summer Saturday Performance
To complete the award, young people will also be required to attend the Visit Preston Summer Saturday event on Preston Flag Market
