Led by One Dance UK, U.Dance is a national programme that celebrates youth dance from across the UK. Each year South East Dance hosts the South East platform: a day of workshops and performances that we invite dance groups from all over the region to take part in.

In March 2020, in partnership with Medway Council Arts Development Team and Loop Dance Company, we presented MaKe U.Dance - a whole day of workshops plus an eclectic showcase featuring work from local groups, alongside those selected for the U.Dance regional platform and special guests Ceyda Tanc Youth Dance.

“The whole day was fantastic and a great way for the dancers to experience dance outside of their school.” Group Leader, MaKe U.Dance 2020

Three groups were shortlisted for the opportunity to take part in the U.Dance National Festival - find out more about them here. Unfortunately, the national festival was unable to take place physically in July 2020 so instead went digital.
