U.Dance 2019

U.Dance Regional Events

Each year the U.Dance National Festival showcases a selection of the best youth dance groups from all over the country. But it’s not just about performance, the dancers take part in workshops and masterclasses with industry professionals, inspire each other with their love of dance and develop their understanding of the dance sector. Next year we are celebrating the U.Dance National Festival’s first return to London since 2012 with a takeover of Southbank Centre, Europe’s biggest centre for the arts. One Dance UK, in partnership with ISTD, are pleased to present two performances in the Queen Elizabeth Hall showcasing England’s talented young dancers, plus other performance and workshop opportunities across the weekend.
