Nation’s Best Dance School Award:
We are very excited to announce a brand new UK Best Dance School Award, which will be granted to the most active, talented, and successful dance studio in Great Britain based on earned scores for participation, e.g. for the number of people participating, competition results, etc.
We established this Award because very often just crew members and dancers are recognized or appreciated. The important people who helped the dancers to achieve success (dance teachers, choreographers, dance schools, dance companies) stay in the shadow. To prepare not just one, but several crews and/or battlers is a very hard work. We want to recognize those dance studios, dance teachers, dance companies, and choreographers who get great results.
