About this event

Following on from the amazing success of our "Big School SEND project" last year, Para Dance UK & Alexandra Palace are excited to announce the launch of our Youth Games Dance competition with our theme for this year being "Big Live Moments" celebrating the return to live performance drawing from stand out live performances over time.

The competition is open to all Primary & Secondary SEND schools & Youth Disability groups in London & surrounding areas to sign up to and join in on the fun.

Thanks to funding from London Response Fund, Walthamstow Stadium Sports Fund, L & Q Foundation, Bailey Thomas Charitable Foundation, Bedfordshire & Luton Community Fund Trust, The True Colour Trust, Tottenham Grammar School Foundation, Haringey Council, & National Heritage Lottery the competition is only £15 to Register for your group.

Once you have signed up your school/disability group will receive a resource pack w/c 13th September 2021 which will have everything you need to get you ready!

Packs will include:

  • Four pre-recorded inclusive dance videos in street dance, musical theatre, non-genre and freestyle. As a school/organisation you can decide if you would like to focus on one routine or try them all but you will need to use one to record and send back to us for your competition entry.
  • Creative videos from Alexandra Palace to help to give your performance that extra bit of razzle dazzle. These will include make up, props, costume and set design. You may decide to focus on costumes or a super back drop or really go to town and have it all. The decision is all yours!
  • Competition rules
  • An opportunity to book a practice zoom session with your very own dance instructor.
  • Our top tips guide of how to record that perfect performance, including consent forms.
  • Zoom catch up sessions where we can answer any questions you have along the way.
