U Dance NW 2020

U.Dance NW 2020

U.Dance is a national framework run by One Dance UK which helps to improve and inspire dance performance opportunities for children and young people across England, through working in partnership with organisations across the country. You can register your own performance events to be a part of the U.Dance Framework on the One Dance UK website.

U.Dance NW is the annual Regional Young Peoples Dance Festival for the North West, delivered by NorthWestDance at The Lowry, Salford Quays. This event will take place Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd March 2020 in the Quays Theatre! 


The NW festival welcomes applications from dance groups across the region who work in all genres of dance with young people aged between 11-19 (or up to 25 for dancers with disabilities). It is a fantastic place to provide regional dance groups/ companies/ schools  the opportunity to perform on a professional stage, take part in dance activities and a variety of professional workshops, as well as meet other young dancers from across the region.


This year, U.Dance NW is providing four strands for young talent in the region to be a part of, including 'Main Stage Performance', 'Under 11s Performance''Dance on Screen' and 'Choreographic Exchange' strands. To find out more about these opportunities in detail, please read our Regional Information & Guidance Notes.

To apply for any of the strands of U.Dance NW 2020 with your group, please email northwestdance@thelowry.com.
