U.Dance on Screen

U.Dance on Screen

U.Dance on Screen runs alongside the annual youth dance festival, whilst focusing on three core values:

  • To celebrate youth dance on screen
  • To expand opportunities to showcase youth dance beyond staged performances – into digital spaces
  • To encourage wider participation in dance from filmmakers, directors and producers

Each year we put out a call for submissions of dance films either by young filmmakers, or containing young dancers.
An independent panel of film/dance professionals then chooses a selection to be part of the annual youth dance festival.

In previous years, selected films have been screened as part of the festival experience and also shown in the auditorium during the performance showcase.

Submissions are now closed for U.Dance 2019.

Following the 2019 call-out, One Dance UK selected 13 diverse films, showcasing young dancers and/or filmmakers, these films will be screened at BFI Southbank on Sunday 21 July. Tickets are free! Find out more below.

Check out the selected films from U.Dance 2017 and 2018.
