Leaping across your region!

U.Dance Regional Platforms, which take place across the UK, offer exciting performance and workshop opportunities to thousands of young dancers each year. Regional Platforms are hosted by a network of partner organisations and take place each spring, showcasing the talents of the region’s young dancers. 

Regional Platforms take place in the spring each year and form part of the selection process for the U.Dance National Festival. Groups and individual dancers of all dance styles are able to enter, aged 11-19, or up to 25 for disabled dancers!

The 2024 Regional Platforms take place from February-May 2024. Applications have now closed.
