In addition to the Main Stage, MOVE IT offers The Freestyle Stage, a place to show off your talent and outrageous dance skills, and The Showcase Theatre, the place to catch performances from some of the best dance schools, colleges, academies and educational establishments in the U.K.
Off stage, MOVE IT also offers an incredible lineup of over 240 dance classes, including a complete mix of genres and the current and future trends in the U.K. dance scene. Whether a seasoned dancer or a beginner looking to try dance for the first time, MOVE IT has something for everyone. (Classes are 45 minutes long and are open to all unless otherwise stated.) Also, MOVE IT PRO hosts seminars and masterclasses specifically for dance teachers, choreographers and professional dancers.
New this year, the MOVE IT Bleachers is a fresh feature that allows ticket holders to sit right alongside the main stage. Expect gossip, impromptu dance offs, career advice and star selfies.
Also original to the scene is the brand new MOVE IT Scouting Team, who will be scouring the show for raw talent. The team will give away free goodies and the opportunity to perform on the Freestyle Stage every day.
For those dance fans who love to shop, MOVE IT will present over 100 exhibitors, some featuring the very latest products from the top dance brands. Attendees can enjoy exclusive show-offers, from buy-one-get-one-free to 20% discount on all orders. For example, Capezio will be at stand 630 all three days offering an exclusive discount and doing giveaways, plus sponsoring a fashion show in partnership with Bird College.
In addition to all this, MOVE IT will also be offering acting, singing and voice classes and hosting free dance fitness demo sessions.
