ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2022 YOUNG CREATIVE AWARDS.

To enter the Dance category, your dance activity, choreography or leadership work can be focused on any theme or idea.

This year, there is an opportunity for applicants to create work with a "dance for camera" focus, whereby work is created specifically to be experienced on film. Follow this link to find out more about dance for camera and some tips on how to get the best from your work.

Applicants are still welcome to submit work that does not have this focus, but all submitted footage should show the dancer(s) and choreography clearly.

Applicants must identify themselves as one or more of the following:

Dancer
Your application should demonstrate you dancing in your own or other choreographer’s work.

Choreographer
You should submit work which you have created on yourself and/or on other dancers.

Dance Leader
Your application should evidence your work with other dancers/dance professionals and/or your leadership work in dance.

A group of dancers/choreographers
One person should apply on behalf of a group entry. A group leader can apply for the group but must identify the young people’s involvement and where possible involve them in the application process. Group applications should identify themselves in the age category which reflects most of the group members’ ages. Group applications should demonstrate group performances or choreography where each group member has contributed to the overall content.

How to apply:

1. Complete the online application form and explain the following:
• Why you have entered the awards
• What your/your group’s role is within the dance activity
• How the dance activity has developed your skills (dance and other skills)

2. Submit the work/piece that you would like to be judged on and label this clearly. This should be your main piece of work that you would like the judges to focus on.

3. Submit supporting evidence about your work, which should be one or more of the following:
• Video links of rehearsal or performance footage with any passwords needed
• Videos of yourself talking, describing your dance work
• Links to websites featuring your work
• Photographs

The more evidence you send, the more the judging panel will know about you.

Please ensure you put web links and passwords in the Other Information box of the application form.
