On Sunday 26 January the first of the U.Dance 2020 East Midlands events, Mass Movement took place.

This annual event celebrates the wealth of youth dance and creativity in the county of Leicestershire, providing the talented young people from the county the opportunity to showcase their work at Leicester’s state-of-the-art Curve  Studio Theatre.

Mass Movement is one of five U.Dance county youth showcase performances.  A panel of dance professionals selected two performances from the evening to be considered for selection for U.Dance 2020 national festival, led by One Dance UK.

A huge thank you and well done to all groups that performed at this years Mass Movement event. We’re delighted to announce the two performances which have been selected by the panel for Mass Movement are:

– Curve Young Company – with their piece, At the Point of Kinetic Inertia

– SideKick Dance –  with their piece, In Diversity There Is Beauty And There Is Strength

Congratulations to both Curve Young Company and SideKick Dance in being selected by the panel.

They’re now on a shortlist and will be joined by eight more groups which will be selected from the other four county events in Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

From the ten groups selected, one will then be chosen to represent the region at the national U.Dance 2020 festival in Glasgow in July later this year.
