Dance can be enjoyed as a physical activity and performing art. Street Dance, in which UDOIT specialise in, originated on the streets of America in the late 70s. Street Dance is an accessible form of dance that is growing extremely popular for young people thanks to TV, Films, Music & Social media.

Dance is an accessible activity that particularly engages those who aren’t hooked on a traditional sporting offer. Dance can allow for team work, leadership, collaboration, creativity to be nurtured and for young people to experience the power dance has on their physical and mental well-being. Street Dance, in particular, appeals to both genders and is inclusive in its nature to be varied to suit every need of the participant. No equipment/kit/desired space is required to take part, only a space big enough for the participants to move and dance safely.

UDOIT Dance Foundation has provided a link to the School Games for the local dance festivals to qualify and be part of our National Schools Dance Championships Level 4 event.

Our national schools championships

In the past, our model has looked like this and is expanding and growing according to the need & demand:

  • 4 regional qualifiers - Northern, Midlands, Southern & Wales
  • Categories- All style (any style that isn’t street dance eg contemporary/jazz/musical theatre) & Street Dance
  • Teams of 4-30 participants with music limit of 2 mins 30.
  • Primary (years 3-6)
  • Junior (years 7-9)
  • Senior (years 10-13)
  • Top 5 from each category qualify for our UK Final.

The day has opportunities to learn from industry professionals in workshops, meet young people from other schools/regions, be inspired by the judges demonstrations and vibe with others who love to dance through freestyle sessions. 

Due to Covid restrictions all of our competitions have been suspended until further notice. 

Get involved

The School Games is inclusive to all young people and provides opportunities for everyone to get involved, either within school, against other local schools, or at county or regional level.
