Get Dancing


For Autumn 2021 we are running a reduced course programme with a view to returning to our full class schedule in the Spring Term. Keep an eye on our social media for updates on what’s to come!


Applications are now open for U.Dance East – a showcase of the finest dance from youth dance groups, companies and schools from across the region, presented by DanceEast and the University of Bedfordshire.

Taking place both live and digitally across two weekends, each regional event will feature workshops, careers panels and performances, and will provide an opportunity for young dancers to connect, learn and celebrate dance!
