U.Dance 2015 National Festival
For U.Dance 2015 we partnered with Plymouth Dance to bring the national youth dance festival to the South West for the very first time. 300 young people representing all regions of England gathered in Plymouth 22-25 July for some phenomenal performances and workshops.

Inclusion and Access at U.Dance 2015
In 2015 we aimed to make the festival more inclusive for people with disabilities. We commissioned inclusive practice specialists GDance to evaluate the inclusiveness of our programming and create recommendations as to areas we can improve.

The 2015 festival had the highest ever number of inclusive dance groups participate. Learn more about how we increased participation for dancers with disabilities on Arts Professional.
