1066 Spring Dance Festival 2021
At our inaugural dance festival, we were overwhelmed with the standard of dancers from across the country. With over 28 different schools entered, it was a chance to marvel at the amazing commitment and dedication shown by dancers and teachers alike at one of the first live festivals of 2021.
Congratulations to our Lockdown Photo competition winner – Fearne Mudie. Fearne’s photo will be appearing in our 1066 Autumn Dance Festival Programme
In lockdown 1066 Dance organised two online dance competitions. This gave the opportunity for dancers from across the UK to perform during these unprecedented times. 1066 Dance received an overwhelming response with over 550 entries from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, proving once again what outstanding talent there is from our mini dancers right up to our seniors.
