The showcase will take place over two evenings, Friday 23 April and Saturday 24 April 2021, and will be available to watch as a Facebook Watch Party and a YouTube Premiere.

You will then be able to view the films on our website and on YouTube for a month after.

An independent regional panel will consider all dance film applications and invite a number of filmed dance pieces to be programmed as part of the regional platform. There is also the exciting opportunity to potentially be selected for the U.Dance National Festival 2021.
