We are delighted to be able to work alongside One Dance UK to continue to offer this inspiring and enriching experience for young people. Not only does U.Dance offer a professional performance opportunity for young dancers, it also enables hundreds of young people to enjoy artist led workshops and masterclasses amongst like-minded peers who share a love for dance.
U.Dance is a National Programme led by One Dance UK which seeks to increase the number of youth dance performances and support those who organise them, whilst raising awareness of the wonderful events that take place right across the country. The framework aims to provide dance performance opportunities for every child and young person in England.
In April this year we presented the South East selection showcase in partnership with Lift Off Dance Festival hosted by South Hill Park Arts Centre. The event featured eight dance companies from across the region and three dance film screenings from young film makers.
Congratulations to Drishti Dance who have been selected to perform Rhythm Incessant at U.Dance 2018 national youth dance festival in July.
“The dancers had a great time and absolutely loved the workshops they took part in, which offered a great mix from the dance styles they experience more regularly… Having the chance to perform on that stage was incredible for our dancers.”
