About U.Dance

U.Dance is a national programme of events which creates opportunities for young people to experience dance by watching, learning and performing.  

One Dance UK works with partners to deliver and support U.Dance events all over the country. We welcome and encourage groups who create dance pieces in all genres, such as jazz and theatre styles, ballet, South Asian dance styles, contemporary dance, dance styles of the African Diaspora including hip hop and other street dance styles, folk dance, you name it: U.Dance is for everyone! Since its inception, the programme has reached over 200 000 young people.  

The One Dance UK team would like to thank the incredible work and generosity of our national partners, group leaders, guest teachers and session leaders, Dance Ambassadors, sponsors and supporters, and the enthusiasm of all young people taking part. 

Teachers and group leaders are welcome to register for further information on an event near you, or discuss any access requirements, by emailing u.dance@onedanceuk.org 


Sir Richard Alston

“Having been involved with the U.Dance National Festival for many years, I have seen the inspiration it gives young dancers from across the country to meet others who as passionate as them about dance. We have to find a way for young people to share with others their passion to achieve great things. Now more than ever, we must make it possible through the help of technology to enable you to create and learn more about the thing you love. Join us!

— Sir Richard Alston, U.Dance Champion
