From Mini's to seniors we offer everybody the same opportunity to compete, learning Solo and Troupe choreography to perform live on stage regularly in a highly relaxed family fun environment.

GDA York September Festival 2020

Despite Covid restrictions we managed to produce a Covid secure festival where 4 Dance schools from the region and Teeside competed in a weekend to remember. GDA York could not be any prouder of our full Competition team for their professionalism and talent displayed on stage resulting in our very own Ella Piercy crowned Supreme Open Champion & Ava Lily Cooke crowned Novice Champion. Huge thanks to our independent adjudicator Georgie Leatherland for her fair and professional judging and a huge thanks to all Dance schools for taking part in a fabulous festival!
