Bristol Plays Music believe that dance can be an alternative way for young people to develop a love for music. To give this opportunity to as many people as possible we created a highly popular schools dance festival – Stages, that gives large numbers of school pupils the chance to show their love of dance and music.

The Stages dance festival is an annual event that involves hundreds of children of all ages from Bristol schools and dance groups. It takes the shape of a festival weekend in March followed by a Gala show the following month.

We’ll also be holding auditions for Kinesis again this year – keep an eye on our channels for information on these.
