The All England Dance Competition, founded in July 1923, is the only one of its kind in the world. It is a Registered Charity, affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals, and is a competitive Festival of Theatre Dance for amateurs, children, and students of Theatre Arts.

To advance the education of the public in the Arts and, in particular, the performance, appreciation and the practice of the Art of Dance.

The main purpose is educational. To provide an opportunity for good amateur dancers to receive the judgement of eminent professionals, to gain experiential knowledge, to benefit from seeing others taking part, to develop their confidence by demonstrating their artistic abilities before both critical and appreciative audiences.

To raise the national standard of amateur performance in theatre dance. To provide a forum for Dance Education and the professional Theatre. To increase popular interest and appreciation of Theatre Dance as an enjoyable, sometimes a moving experience and often an entertaining art form. To further public recognition of dance as an important factor in human social development. To be a means by which good dancers may become more widely known and by which some may start their careers as professional artistes.

Membership is by subscription and is open to any person who is interested in the objective of the Competition.
