Dance Schools

This year will be even bigger & better with TWO FULL DAYS! There will be over 200 masterclasses, a new competition, a bigger Fashion Stage, the ALL NEW Spotlight Theatre & so much more! Taking place on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th October.

Perform on the CYD? Main Stage

The inspiration behind our ‘Main Stage’ is to allow dance schools to come together and showcase their work in a fun, friendly and non-competitive environment.

What does your dance school get:

  • A complimentary showcase performance on our main stage in the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool
  • Your group will have professional lighting & sound production throughout their performance
  • Your performance will be filmed professionally by our videographers free of charge with a video link available after the event to share with friends & family.
  • Your Dance School’s name will feature in our show brochure

(You can enter 1 group per school (minimum of 8 dancers, max 50) from aged 8 upwards & it can be a mixed group as it’s not a competition. Music length is 3 minutes)
