Festivals are an opportunity to compete against other dancers in your category
all england dance festivals.
for hardworking students who are dedicated to dance
When you are invited to enter dance festivals, you need to be prepared to practise. There are different dance categories at the festivals from solos in ballet, tap and modern to duets and group performances. Miss Katy will organise extra lessons for you and will choose a choreographer to create a dance routine to be performed to music which has been specifically chosen for you. You will also be part of the creative process when choosing the costume and along with these fabulous memories, will be yours to own forever.
At every dance festival an adjudicator will watch your performance and give you a score. If you have worked very hard, and danced to perfection on the day, you may be rewarded with a medal and the chance to continue to the next stage for the semi-finals and then the finals in London every other year.
