Dance Festivals

All England Dance is the national body of dance festivals. Festivals are usually run by volunteers and last for a few weeks. Dancers will perform in their age/style category and be judged by an examiner from a UK leading dance faculty. All dancers receive a certificate, mark & feedback. 

 

WHO DOES ENTRIES?

BDA does all the group entries for the school, but parents must do their own entries for solo/duo/trios.

Competitions
Dance Comps

Dance Competitions have become more popular in the UK and take place over one or two days. Often the dance categories follow current trends. We take a selected team (often only our Teens/Seniors) to compete at these events.

WHO DOES ENTRIES?

BDA often has to enter dance competitions on behalf of our dancers.
