Dance groups in Buckinghamshire are being encouraged to sign up for next year’s Activate youth dance festival.
The annual event, now in it’s 14th year, provides a platform for dance schools, community dance groups, youth centres and schools to showcase their skills.
This years festival was held at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre and saw more than thirty dance groups performed a variety of styles from street dance to contemporary.
Organised by Aylesbury Vale District Council the dance extravaganza was expanded to run over two nights due to its previous success and high demand.
