DanceEast is hosting this year’s U.Dance National Festival in partnership with One Dance Uk. The festival will take place at the Jerwood DanceHouse from Friday 13 – Sunday 15 July.

Over 160 young people from across England will perform over two main shows at the Jerwood DanceHouse and take part in workshop activities, careers sessions and Friday evening social events. As such we are looking for some volunteers to help make the weekend a success.
