Lovers of all forms of dance are in for a treat this month as the 42nd Luton Festival of Dance is held at Lealands School in Sundon.
It features everything from ballet, tap and national to character, song and dance, and modern with children aged between four and 21 taking part solo or in duets, trios, quartets and groups.
The contest serves as a heat for the prestigious All England Dance Competition regional final which will be held at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage in May, followed by the grand finale at the Hackney Empire in London in July.
Many previous contestants have gone on to make the stage their profession, like Faye Tozer from Dunstable.
It attracts entries from dance schools across Beds, Herts, Bucks and north London and runs every weekend during March – the 4th and 5th, 11th and 12th, 18th and 19th, and 25th and 26th.
It’s open each day from 9am to 7pm and buffet facilities are available.
