Every year we host Dance Days, an intensive event open to all dance students and teachers.
Dance Days is our bbodance flagship event and is held annually at Elmhurst Ballet School in Birmingham. Students attend three days of multi genre intensive classes culminating in a showcase for parents, guardians, and teachers in the Elmhurst Theatre. Students also have the opportunity to be selected by the faculty to receive cups and awards. Alongside the students’ classes, teachers can choose to observe classes or take part in a choice of CPD sessions.
We are delighted to be launching registration for Dance Days 2024, our biggest event of the year!
From classes for juniors, intensive days of dance for students, and CPD for teachers, we’re sure there is a way for everyone to get involved in 2024!
