MaKe U.Dance - U.Dance South East Regional Platform 2020
U.Dance is a national programme, led by One Dance UK, that celebrates youth dance in the UK. Each year South East Dance hosts the South East Regional Platform, inviting groups from all over the region to apply to take part. This year in March, 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, those selected for the U.Dance regional platform and special guests Ceyda Tanc Youth Dance.
Thank you to all the dancers, group leaders and everyone involved who made this event possible; including Loop Dance Company and National Youth Dance Company who led energising inspiring workshops during the day.
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 this year but is going online 17-19 July
“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
We’ve created a short film to give you a taste of the MaKe U.Dance event at the Brook Theatre, Chatham earlier this year. Film by Paul Astley >>>
