Please access the syllabus here.

Dates are: 16, 17, 23, 24, 30 September, 1, 7, 8, 14 & 15 October (5 weekends)

There are a few changes to our Festival this year – especially our move to Festival Connect for entries.  The Entries will be open at 12 noon on Sunday 18 June 2023 – please do not try to access this beforehand as we will be trialling things and you may lose your data.


Please remember that Festival Connect is new to us, as well as fairly new to you.  We will aim to support you as much as possible throughout the process.


Can we please mention the following for your information:


  • Please ensure that the music is recorded on MP3 or .WAV (we know that the system supports these formats).

  • Please pay attention to the syllabus as All England Dance have made changes to some of the genres.  Pay special attention to items like Contemporary Ballet and Contemporary as these are two different styles.  Also, Jazz Lyrical / Modern and Jazz / Modern are two different styles.  At the end of the syllabus we have listed the All England Genre Descriptors, which gives you the information required for each style.

  • There are new Group sections so please ensure that you are aware of this when entering your groups.

  • Please check out our collaboration with Rambert Grades as there are some excellent prizes up for grabs.  Only solo contemporary and ballet contemporary section.


Schools, in the first instance, will be restricted to 100 entries.  If you exceed this number, you will be sent an email to inform you that you have done so and the extra entries will be deleted.


Once we know how many entries we are dealing with we will then decide whether we can open up to receive more entries or we will have reached capacity well before the closing date of 16 July.  Entries must be paid for by 16 July, after which time unpaid entries will be deleted.  If you try to enter but find that you are unable to as the system is full, please email us ( and we will place you on a reserve list (this will be first come first serve).


We hope this is clear.  As we said, this is all new to us too, so please bear with us.  If you have any questions regarding the entries, please contact Festival Connect directly.  If you have any other questions, please contact us on
