Never heard of this event, unless it is F1 race. Shame it is not publicised more.

1 is in the under 12s and the rest are in 12-14. It is around 2.5 hours for us but travel near there anyway for associates. Not much advertising about the event in Hinckley.

They have been on Facebook. I suspect it will grow in popularity depending how this year goes.

As you say it has not been well advertised other than on Facebook.  Plenty of tickets still available to watch the finals but not too surprising as their web page doesn't even appear to mention that you can view and how to get tickets!

It's also publicised on Instagram although it's a relatively new account (launched February) and "only" has just over 3,500 followers so far. As SissoneDoublee says, there are some fairly eminent schools supporting it this year so I guess we'll see where it goes from here.

Yes, we will be watching at 7pm. We know one senior girl through, 3 inters and a junior.

Everyone did well but is a competition and so that is the way it goes. Took Dd1 to watch Aladdin as consolation and that took her mind off of it.🤗

Best of luck. Kinda sucks for the juniors when there were only 15 dancing and 10 got through but we're looking forward to watching the finals. We are armed with Colin caterpillars

Can I ask a question that I hope isn’t controversial?? How can Judges adjudicate over their own pupils? I notice one if the winners attends a school that one of the Judges is Artistic Director of. I’m genuinely interested.

3 of the judges had their own pupils dancing.

Just a thought; Tutugirl may not want to identify her pupil.

Yes, it's part of the AUP that it must be official lists that are used.
