Youth Dance Competitions

YUVA and NAVADAL, 2017-19

Akademi’s national South Asian youth dance competitions are an opportunity for young dancers to be recognised at an early stage in their career and is a catalyst for them to find new pathways into the dance sector. Over the years, this competition has been a part of Southbank Centre’s Alchemy Festival and One Dance UK’s U.Dance Festival.
