U.DANCE

Celebration events

“It made me want to be a professional dancer

U.Dance North East 2022 offers a chance for young people to perform and share their work at a local venue, alongside other groups. It is part of U.Dance, a national programme supporting and encouraging dance and performance opportunities for young people across the country. U.Dance, as part of One Dance UK, celebrates the creativity, passion and achievements of dancers aged 11-19 across the UK.

Here at Dance City, we host the U.Dance regional platform for the North East. We look to celebrate originality, imagination and memorable dance and movement pieces.

In partnership with 5 dance-hub venues each sub-regional platform offers up to ten groups the opportunity to perform together.

From each of these performances, two groups are selected to perform at Dance City. This sees 10 groups of young people meet, dance on stage, and celebrate each other’s performances. From these groups, some may choose to be considered to represent the North East at the U.Dance National festival.
