This year South East Dance was delighted to team up with Brighton-based dance company, Penny & Jules Dance, Brighton and Hove High School and One Dance UK, to bring HOSTED, the U.Dance South East showcase, to the stage. Eleven youth companies from across the region joined together for a vibrant and varied night of dance at Brighton’s The Old Market. There were also screenings of work by three budding dance filmmakers. The evening was an enormous success, and it was wonderful to see the spectrum of talent emerging in the region.
A panel of three judges were there to select two groups to represent the South East at the National U.Dance 2017 Platform. We are pleased to announce that this year the groups are Penny & Jules Youth Dance and Ceyda Tanc Youth. Ceyda Tanc Youth shared their elation with us:
When we were told that we would be representing the South East, excitement ran through my body as this was my first performance with Ceyda Tanc Youth Dance and I have never had a greater opportunity in the whole 6 years I've been dancing.
Huge congratulations to both, and thank you to all the amazing dancers that took to the stage at this year’s HOSTED.
This year’s National Festival is taking place in Birmingham from 13-15 July. Click here for more information.
