Each year, companies from regional showcases like Fresh are selected to perform at the final U.Dance showcase, which takes place in a difference city every year. Two of these groups performing in Doncaster will be selected by an independent panel of judges to perform at U.Dance in Salford this July 2016.
Feedback from Yorkshire Dance was that the panel felt that the piece showed clear choreographic motifs or the ‘selfie’ theme throughout and had a great level of energy. The piece was performed with vigour and it really engaged the audience. The panel noted that the dancers showed real commitment and gave 100% through their drive, passion and skill.
We had a book and its was wonderful to see so much fantastic work happening across the region.
