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. The 2023 Regional Platforms will take place from February-May 2023. Applications open in late 2023 so be sure to check back here in the autumn, or contact your regional organisation below to find out more.

Whether or not you have taken part in a Regional Platform, all young dancers are welcome to join in online at the U.Dance National Festival this summer! Watch this space for details on FREE online sessions with the country’s leading dance experts. More information on U.Dance National Festival page!
