The International Elite Dance Championships - October Half Term

We are so fortunate to have been confirmed a place at the IEDC. Those hoping to be in the International Competition Squad need to leave these dates free for now (Mon 26th to Fri 30th). You may also want to keep a day either side of these dates for travel just in case, as we don't have the exact itinerary yet and you can choose flights that suit you best. This is going to be the most fantastic competition in an absolutely fabulous venue! We simply can't wait! Invites have been given out in envelopes to those concerned - auditions are 3rd March.
