Dance Festival

Newcastle Schools Dance Festival
 
We are proud to host the annual Newcastle Primary Schools Dance Festival and have run the event each year since 2014.
 
The event is a celebration of primary Dance and is an opportunity for children to showcase a piece of dance that they have developed and practised on back at their school.  Newcastle City Hall has been the venue for all of Dance Festivals, and what better way for children to showcase their talents by being given the opportunity to perform in front of their parents and families at this prestigious and well-known venue.
 
For 2018, we received sponsorship from Intu Eldon Square.  As part of the build up to the event one of our primary schools performed for shoppers at Eldon Square.  A record number of 46 Newcastle Schools were represented at the Dance Festival this year, which is the only non competitive city wide opportunity for KS1 & KS2 children.  Many of these children had never performed a dance piece and through feedback from schools some of the children that have performed have been inspired to join Dance Clubs out of school time.
