Following the overwhelming success of the Dance Live! annual dance event for schools and colleges, The Guildhall Trust is now delighted to launch Dance Live! Studio Edition – a showcase competition for dance schools, studios and youth dance companies.

Using the backdrop of a giant LED screen following the lead of programmes like BBC’s ‘Greatest Dancer’ and ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, dancers aged 7-18 from across the region are invited to take to the stage and perform, with between 4-7 minute routines judged live by a panel of professional judges who have worked within the stage industry.
