Dance that’s up your street!

These are performances presenting dance work featuring children and young people from more than one school or group, in communities up and down the UK. Most local youth dance performances and platforms can be registered as a U.Dance Local event, subject to meeting eligibility criteria.

 Register your youth dance performance event to gain a range of exciting benefits and support, including promotion, certificates for participants and a place on the U.Dance Local map.


U.Dance Local events are non-competitive, inclusive performance opportunities for children and young people aged 5 to 19, or up to 25 for those with disabilities. Organisers should be committed to providing a safe, high quality and positive performance experience.


*For 2021, due to current restrictions to live performance, we are accepting applications for online U.Dance Local events. Please refer to the Guidance Notes if you are planning an online dance event.
