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 form part of the selection process for the U.Dance National Festival.

U.Dance Regional Platforms are taking place digitally in 2021, showcasing youth dance work created both for stage and screen, and in many cases offering inspiring workshop opportunities in a range of dance styles.
