Each year the National U.Dance Festival celebrates the wealth of youth dance talent from across the UK and U.Dance 2017 took place in Birmingham from 14-16 July.
U.Dance 2017 showcased around 30 youth dance companies selected from regional U.Dance platforms that took place across the UK in the Spring. In addition to the selected groups, the three national youth dance companies of Scotland, Wales and England were invited to perform over the three shows. The hundreds of young dancers participated in classes, workshops, careers sessions and social activities during their three and half day residential.
One Dance UK presented this year’s festival with Premiere Partner: Birmingham Hippodrome, alongside other partners including DanceXchange, ACE Dance & Music, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Akademi, Sampad, and ISTD.
