Following the success of our online project for younger dancers, we’re thrilled to announce our ‘New Horizons Digital Dance Festival’ for schools, universities and community dance groups.

We’re then asking you to film the full piece and share it with us, BCDH will then combine all dance recordings into a professionally edited dance festival film to celebrate the wealth and talent of our young dancers.
