Who can apply for FRESH?


FRESH is for every style of dance, from streetdance to Kathak to commercial. We accept applications from soloists, duets, trios, and groups of up to 20 dancers. Groups can be brand new or long-standing – everyone is welcome!

We are accepting applications for both on stage and on screen performances.


What are we looking for?


We are looking for dance pieces and screendances made by and with young people showcasing:

  • excellence in performance
  • original, excellent and engaging choreography
  • dancers taking clear ownership of the choreography, which is appropriate for their age and experience

See Application Guidelines for further details of these criteria and things to think about.
