Here at The Dance Factory we like to give our pupils as many performance opportunities as possible. Our festival team is made up of dancers ranging from 6 - 16 years. Our team is of all levels and abilities, but offers children the same opportunities, which may be over looked at other dance schools. We aim to develop confidence and performance skills for all pupils who join our festival team. We compete regularly at festivals in the South West region, including Bristol, North Devon and Exeter. There are no auditions for our festival team. Please look out for the next notice on the studio notce board, and add your childs name if they wish to take part.
