PERFORMANCE GROUPS CONFIRMED
We'll notify the schools/groups that are selected to take part in the Festival. Selection will be based upon ensuring a balance of primary schools, secondary schools, college/FE providers and community dance groups across each Festival day.
All other groups will be placed on a waiting list and contacted in the event of a performance slot becoming available.
When your performance slot is confirmed we'll issue an invoice for the registration fee (£145). This will need to be paid within 30 days (and before the end of the summer holidays). Failure to pay the invoice may result in your performance slot being allocated to another school/group
