We are delighted to announce that Origins, Pavilion Dance’s youth dance platform, will be back in Spring 2024! 

Save the dates: Sat 23rd/Sun 24th March 2024

Origins is a youth showcase celebration at Pavilion Dance where we are keen to celebrate all styles of dance and are committed to providing performance opportunities for all. 

Each day will feature professional dance artist workshops and include some time to meet other groups and watch a dress run of the performance before showtime! In the past the day has typically run from around 9am until 7:30pm.  There is no fee to participate.

Expression of Interest – DEADLINE 15th December 2023

If you are interested in participating please complete this Expression of interest Google form.

We welcome collaborative pieces if you want to apply alongside another school/youth company.

If you are formally invited to participate, we’ll ask you to complete a more detailed form, including tech, participant details, consent forms and first aid etc. Groups will either be invited to participate on the Saturday or Sunday with the performance taking place in our Ocean Theatre here at Pavilion Dance.  Please specify if you have a preference for either day, but know this can’t be guaranteed. Tickets will go on sale in the Spring for family & friends to come and watch. Pieces can be no longer than 7 minutes maximum.

We’re proud that Origins 2024 will be celebrating the very best of local youth dance talent from Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole (BCP), Dorset & the surrounding area.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 15th December 2023.
