Sal Smith, headteacher at Easington and Patrington primary schools, said: "The staff and families were thrilled watching the pupils dance on stage.
"The pupils were really excited to have performed on stage and were very animated."
Patrington's performance was based on not smoking and Easington's on healthy eating.
Mrs Smith said: "It was a difference style of involvement of the curriculum and having the students from the high school running workshops was a big bonus.
"It was an opportunity for the pupils to join in with other schools in the cluster and mix with a wider group of people.
"I would like to express my thanks to Withernsea High School for organising the event."
Each primary school went home with an award.
Burton Pidsea won one for their commitment, Roos for costumes, Patrington for enthusiasm, Keyingham for performance skills and Easington for excellence.
As well as performances from pupils at the schools, the evening also featured guest appearances from local dance groups including the Academy of Dance and Performing Arts, LWHS School of Dance and Verity Lee's School of Dance.
The high school's acting head of dance, Jamie Hardy, said: "This showcase aimed to bring together the local primary schools, local dance groups and work completed in school.
"It is a celebration of dance by different ages and provided the opportunity to really show the talent in Withernsea and the surrounding area at its best."
Withernsea High School headteacher Richard Williman said: "As a school, we are keen to provide experience for our students to take on leadership responsibility and work with our wider community.
"This was one such opportunity and I would like to thank the students and Miss Hardy, who have worked so hard in preparing what was a very enjoyable and successful evening."
