Dance Westminster

Dance Westminster is Westminster’s annual dance competition, designed to encourage disabled people to be more active through dance.

Dance Westminster is lead by Step Change Studios, an award-winning, pioneering dance company committed to making dance accessible for everyone.

This year Dance Westminster will be held virtually, starting with two 45-minute live workshops for participants to take part in dance, and to learn a dance routine.

Contestants can then submit a 30 second video of themselves performing a dance routine; either one of the workshop routines, or one of their own of any dance genre they prefer.

Ten finalists will be chosen from the video entries and will be paired with a dance professional to create a special finalist dance. The dances will be professionally filmed and broadcast at a virtual grand finals on 15 July 2021. Virtual audiences and a special panel of judges will decide who will be the Dance Westminster Champion, 2021.
