U.Dance Regional

U.Dance Regional Platforms, which take place across the UK, offer exciting performance and workshop opportunities to thousands of young dancers each year. Regional Platforms are hosted by a network of partner organisations and take place each spring, showcasing the talents of the region’s young dancers. 

Regional Platforms form part of the selection process for the U.Dance National Festival. 

U.Dance Regional Platforms will take place in Spring 2022 – please contact your regional organiser for more information. Please read the Guidance Notes below which will be useful when preparing your application.
