“A CHANCE TO DANCE” is the most prestigious Community-Based Dance Event in the South of England; held each July at The Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre & the adjacent Pavilion Dance South West. 

Our Annual Event offers Dance Students the opportunity to work with Dance Professionals in workshops help throughout the day – in a variety of Dance & Performance Genres.
Followed by a Grand Performance Gala in the evening with each School performing twice & a Finale for all Students.

Participating Students also receive an official T-Shirt, Professional individual & school group photographs & the Gala Performance is STREAMED ONLINE so everyone has a wonderful memory of the Event.
Participating Principals are presented on stage after the Finale along with Guest Lecturers who run their individual workshops during the day.
It’s a very friendly & popular Event !!
