Last call for Dance Proms 2012 entries:

Monday, 30 April 2012

The deadline for dance teachers to enter their students for this year’s Dance Proms has been extended until May 27.

For the second year running, Dance Proms will showcase the work of dance students and their teachers at a gala performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London on November 4. 

Entries should be in the form of a short video of an original dance piece choreographed by teachers or their students in any dance genre, either as a solo, duet, or group performance, and uploaded at the Dance Proms website (www.danceproms.co.uk), which contains full details and guidance on how to film and upload entries. 

A respected panel of professionals will view all entries and agree a shortlist, which will then be put to a public vote through the Dance Proms website. 

Dance Proms is the brainchild of three leading dance examinations boards, the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA), the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), who have joined forces with the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the work of their UK and Republic of Ireland dance teaching members and their students. 

Last year 24 acts were selected from over 300 entries submitted by video entry.  More than 450 dance students performed a range of genres including ballet, ballroom, salsa, tap and South Asian dance, alongside guest appearances by Marianela Nuñez and Thiago Soares, principals of the Royal Ballet, and “Strictly Come Dancing” stars Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova (pictured). 

Details of the public vote and how to book tickets for the Dance Proms will be announced soon. Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
