Dancers with an ambition to perform on a national stage before an audience of thousands have the chance to see their dreams realised in a major national dance event.
The search is on to find the UK’s most talented dance students – in all dance genres, from ballet to ballroom, salsa to street dance and cheerleading to club dance – to perform at the first ever Dance Proms at the Royal Albert Hall in November.
Dance teachers are invited to choreograph and video an original dance with their students and submit it online. The pieces can be performed as a solo, couple, trio or group performance. A variety of acts will then be selected by a panel of professionals to come together to perform live at a gala performance in front of thousands of people at the Royal Albert Hall on November 13.
Throughout the project, entrants will be able to collaborate virtually – chat, share ideas and learn from one another – through a unique interactive online resource made available by Webplay, an arts education charity that combines technology with performing arts.
The deadline for video entries for Dance Proms is May 11. Entries must be submitted by UK and Ireland-based teachers who are members of one of three organisations: the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA) or the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD UK). Details on how to register, advice on how to film the dance piece and the full terms and conditions are available at www.danceproms.co.uk
Dance Proms at the Royal Albert Hall will be open to the public. For further information on how to book tickets please contact email@example.com
