Have you got the skills to dance?

A major competition featuring 30 new street dance crews across Lincolnshire is coming to Market Rasen and Caistor for the first time.

The Lottery Funded event will involve district-level semi-finals and a grand battle to be crowned Dance Factor Lincolnshire Champions!

Rehearsals start next week and preparations for budding dancers will include ten weeks of free rehearsals with a professional dance teacher.

All crews compete in a local semi final event to win a place in the Grand Final.

Successful crews compete in a Grand Final event held at a professional theatre venue.

One group is crowned Dance Factor Lincolnshire Champions by a panel of dance industry experts.

Alice Carter, Community and Youth Dance Coordinator-artsNK, says the event used to be held only in North Kesteven and Lincoln but extra lottery funding allowed for a countywide roll-out this year.

The sessions in Market Rasen take place in the Festival Hall for ten weeks from 6pm to 7.30pm, starting on Thursday February 5.

Caistor Yarborough Academy will host Caistor’s dance sessions in its Dance Studio. They start on Tuesday February 3 for ten weeks, from 4pm to 5.30pm.
