About Us - All England Dance
WELCOME to All England Dance and to the exciting world of dance festivals – a world full of friends you haven’t yet met, full of dance forms you may not have experienced and above all, full of inspiration at what children and young people can achieve!
If you are a dancer, and especially if you have qualified for the first time, then congratulations! Gaining a place at our Regional Finals is a huge achievement and you are a part of a nationwide family that includes dedicated dancers, enlightened parents, inspirational teachers, appreciative audiences, professional adjudicators and the enthusiastic and expert team at All England Dance who bring it all together.
We were founded in 1923 and since that time we have gained a reputation for excellence – in the theatres we use, the adjudicators and judges we engage and, above all, the dancers we attract and we look forward to welcoming everyone to this unique competition in 2021.
All England Dance is delighted to congratulate Southampton Festival for successfully running the very first qualifying festival of 2021/2022 Season. Sule, Terri and the team ran a wonderful festival. Along with June Hornby as adjudicator, this festival enabled over 200 dancers qualify to the Southern Regional Finals in May 2022. We look forward to the upcoming Canterbury, Corby, Limelight, Northampton, Petersfield and Ruislip festivals who despite delays in the roadmap are planning live qualifying festivals for July.
In addition, All England Dance welcomes 1066 Festival as a nominated All England Festival, taking place in September 2021, we look forward to seeing all the fabulous work from this new festival.
The All England Board wish all dancers competing over the summer the best of luck and we hope that this is a sign of great things to come.
Keep Dancing !
