Virtual Dance Competition
3 January, 2022 from 8:00 am - 31 March, 2022 from 5:00 pm
FOR ALL, Targeted, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This event is a For All event and is aimed at everyone. The intent is to support individual development in sport.
When: Spring term
Who for: All primary aged children -separate competitions for KS1, KS2, KS3 & KS4

‘PLEASE NOTE: When submitting videos of pupils please ensure that your school photo/video consent policy is followed at all times. No videos submitted as entries into this competition will be shared publicly. They will only be viewed by the competition organisers and judges.’
Next round: The winners from each School Sports Partnership area will be invited to perform at the opening ceremony of a Partnership competition this year and will also be judged by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough School Games Organising Committee with the chance to perform at the opening ceremony of the county School Games in June.
Fun! We would like all children to enjoy this dance competition and have a positive experience, thinking about the School Games values of self-belief and passion. There will be an award for the group/school that best demonstrates these values.
This competition is for all children in your school and there are 4 entry categories, KS1, KS2, KS3 & KS4. Teams can consist of any size from 3-30 so small groups, large groups or whole class and can be boys, girls or mixed gender. Video entries can be sent into your School Games Organiser at any time during the Spring term, maximum 3 entries per key stage per school. It may be an idea to have an intra school competition and select your entries from this.
