Step LIVE!

Our end of year showcase event

Step LIVE! 2017 will be held at Southbank Centre on Monday 17 July 2017 and will be a celebration of our 10 year anniversary. The festival includes free afternoon activities and a thrilling evening performance in the Royal Festival Hall.

Step LIVE! will be a festival of youth dance, showcasing all the work that Step into Dance offers. It will encourage new audiences to experience and see dance performances. Over 700 dancers will be involved, bringing young people and their families from every single London Borough to Southbank Centre for a great day of fun, entertainment and creativity.

Strep LIVE! 2017 will be divided into three sections:  

11.30am - 5.30pm: Free afternoon activities with performances, street dance battles and workshops
The daytime events will be an opportunity for dancers from SEN and mainstream schools to share their work with their performances on the Clore Ballroom. There will be workshops and activities for audience, family and friends throughout the day. Step into Battle will take place in the afternoon on the Festival Terrace and will include street dance and breaking battles with a live DJ, MC and top judges from the UK's dance scene.

6pm - 7.30pm: Evening performance in the Royal Festival Hall
The four Step into Dance Youth Companies and selected school companies will perform in the early evening in the Royal Festival Hall. They will show new works and revived pieces from their repertoire from our Step teachers Kevin Young, Sonny Ward, Maria Cassar, Lee Griffiths and Rob Gentle in partnership with Cheryl Noble. They will also premier specially commissioned pieces from choreographers Sarah Blanc (Candoco), Jessica Williams (Frantic Assembly). Buy your tickets to the evening show here.
