Budding dancers set to dazzle on stage at the Royal Albert Hall

Dance Proms 2013 announces line-up for international dance spectacular

Young dancers from Belgium, Italy and New Zealand have won the chance to perform at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Dance Proms, the UK‟s largest youth dance festival. They will join 22 other dance acts from schools in the UK – around 450 dancers in total – who will perform on stage on Sunday November 3rd.

The twenty-five dance acts come from all dance genres, from Ballet to Ballroom, Salsa to Street Dance and Jive to Jazz Dance. The selected students will be joined by reigning British Ballroom youth champions Kyle Taylor and Polina Shyklyaeva and a winning group from the 2013 Dance World Cup, who will all make guest appearances.

To qualify, dance teachers submitted a short dance piece featuring original choreography in any genre and performed as a solo, couple, trio or group performance. This year, the genres range from more traditional Ballet and Greek Dance, to Rock, Street Dance and Cheerleading.

Entries were submitted online by video and were judged by a panel including artistic directors and senior examiners from the world of dance. An online public vote took place during June to find the final act to join the Dance Proms Company. Over 3,300 votes were cast and the winning school was Danscentre (Aberdeen, Scotland) with a Ballet piece called ‘My Space’.

Proms provides young dancers with a unique opportunity to perform in one of the world’s most prestigious venues and this is the first year that the event has been open to international entries. Dance Proms was established to celebrate dance in all its forms and the unique relationship between students and their dance teachers. It is supported by dozens of top names from the dance world. Patrons include Darcey Bussell CBE, Shabba Doo, Matt Flint, Len Goodman, Chris Hollins, Bonnie Langford, Wayne McGregor CBE, Arlene Phillips CBE, Lisa Riley and Angela Rippon OBE.

Darcey Bussell CBE, President of the RAD and Patron of Dance Proms says:
“It’s so important that young talent has a chance to see what other talented people are doing at this national event. I know from my own experience how important it is to see what your peers are up to while you’re training. For a student, performing at the Royal Albert Hall is out of this world. They learn so much and it will affect them for the rest of their lives.”

After not doing a ‘formal’ charity challenge whilst getting our branded photobook business PhotoLeaf up and running, our Chairman, Robin Sumner, felt it was about time get back in the saddle – literally!

Robin will be cycling the Viking Way raising money for the British Heart Foundation on October 13, 2013, this is part of his build up to completing the Sittingbourne to Paris Bike Ride Demelza 101 in April 2014. Starting from Demelza’s Hospice in Sittingbourne Ending under the Eiffel Tower in Paris 3 days later.
