Take a break
Members of the 5'Bz street dance group perform at the Creative Voice Youth Dance Platform, held at the Freedom Centre in east Hull, earlier this year
Young people who have spare time and energy to burn can go to a series of dance classes this month.
Breakdance and street dance workshops will be held at Kingston Youth Centre in Beverley Road on Wednesday August 6, 13 and 20 to enable young people to learn the energetic and improvisational forms of dance.
The classes were organised after young people in Hull identified the dance styles as holiday activities they wanted to take part in.
They worked in partnership with Hull City Council to successfully bid for Youth Opportunities Funding to pay for the sessions.
Meanwhile, there are plans to develop the potential of Kingston Youth Centre for arts and leisure activities.
"Young people are telling us they want to make more of the centre so we would like it to become a hub for youth arts in the city," said Ruth Drake, a learning and development advisor for Hull City Arts.
"A purpose built dance studio is one idea they have in mind and hopefully we will be announcing some exciting investment projects over the next year or so. "
The classes run from 5.15 to 6.15pm and are free to attend.

The organisers of a forthcoming exhibition at Ferens Art Gallery are appealing for Hull people to tell of any information they have regarding this picture.
Capturing a day in the life of female workers at Reckitt and Colman in 1955, the image - painted by Hull artist Walter Goodin - depicts the canister works at the plant which workers knew as the 'tin room'.
The painting will form part of a major exhibition of the artist's work at the gallery next month.
"We would love to hear from anyone who has information about the painting," says assistant keeper of art Christine Brady.
"Are you or a relative in the picture?
What was it like to work there?
We would especially like to find out the names of the people in the painting."
The exhibition 'Walter Goodin: Above all, the Sky' opens on September 27 and runs until January 4 2009.
