U.Dance 2020 – New Dimensions

Back by popular demand! U.Dance 2020 will offer youth dance companies the opportunity to apply directly to One Dance UK to perform at U.Dance 2020 via the New Dimensions strand! New Dimensions allows youth groups and individual young people to submit high quality pieces of work by video which are up to 15 minutes long.

We encourage applicants to submit work which will enhance the U.Dance programme by showcasing more experimental work or by showcasing a wider range of styles and genres. Selected New Dimensions pieces will take place on 17, 18 and 19 July at Tramway, Glasgow, as part of the U.Dance 2020 main stage performances. See more about U.Dance national Festival here
