Based in Portsmouth, Hampshire our dance festivals ensure performing in a competitive environment is in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Our Novice festival is aimed at encouraging and improving dancers who may have never competed before or are new to training, whilst our Open festival is for dancers who regularly compete at a high level. Each dancer is given feedback from a qualified and professional adjudicator to help them improve in areas such as technique, musicality and performance.

We understand that going on stage by yourself or in a small group, whatever your performance experience, can be daunting so we just want you to have fun, enjoy the moment and dance like no-one is watching! 

We have also previously offered an online summer dance festival via video submission, open to dancers of all abilities and will be looking to hold an Open dance festival in 2021 in addition to our Novice only competition!
