So, you've had a wander round our website, read all about our competition, our special celebration show and the showcase - and now you're contemplating whether to sign your school up for our 2020 event, right?

Well this page is all about helping you decide whether Dance Caper really is the festival for you and your school.

  1. We are a beginners dance festival, designed to raise the confidence and aspirations of young dancers from across the country.  If you are looking for your pupils' first festival, or enter just a couple of small scale festivals a year - then Dance Caper is for you.  If your school and pupils enter many competitions a year and you are looking for another to add to your schedule, then unfortunately Dance Caper is not the festival for you.

  2. If you are looking for an action-packed celebration of dance that incorporates a  comprehensive competition with inspirational professional performances, awards not only for competition winners but also for those within your schools that deserved to be celebrated and a super friendly atmosphere. Then YES we are for you! 

Dance Caper is not 'just another dance competition'. We are a celebration of dancing talent, an inspirer and a celebration of the joy dance can bring.


To be eligible for Dance Caper 2020, your school must meet the following criteria

  • Schools (not teams) entering must have entered 3 or less competitions of any kind in the last 12 months and consider themselves to be of a novice/beginners level.

  • Schools (not teams) entering must not be planning to enter any more than 3 competitions of any kind in the next 12 months

  • Schools (not teams) entering must not have competed in ANY national finals within the last 2 years.

  • We discourage auditioning dancers to take part - we want Dance Caper to be as inclusive as possible!

  • Schools entering should consider themselves as a non-competition focused school
