Festival "School Dance 2018"

Festival "School Dance" is the biggest dance festival for children and young people in Estonia, bringing together 5000–6000 4–22 years old dancers from all over Estonia each year.

At the festival, children and young people perform their own dances at the dance days of different counties and acquire new skills in various dance workshops.

Traditionally, the best dances of every county dance day will get to the big final concert, where nominees and laureates will be selected by dance genres. From the workshops, the dancers will be selected who will enter the School Dance Company and who will create dance performances that will be performed in different places throughout Estonia.

The goal of the festival is, among other things, to offer children and young people the opportunity to show themselves and to challenge themselves, to perform and to shine, to find new friends and challenges.

"School Dance" is a major event for children and young people which consists of three big events: the festival, the workshops and the School Dance Company.

Festival – dance days in different counties where dance schools and studios and general schools compete. The dances selected by the jury from the county dance days will be performed on the two-day final concert.

Workshops – workshops conducted by various top choreographers give dancers an opportunity to get new experiences, get to know different dance styles and to learn together with dancers from other dance schools and studios. In the workshops, TV3 Play TV show "Dance Craze" will be made, which, with the help of the audience, will choose the best young dancer in Estonia.

School Dance Company – three choreographers create three dance productions with the dancers who are chosen from the workshops. The productions will be touring across Estonia under the name of the School Dance Company.
