In 2015 we introduced our London Youth Games Dance competition into the schools’ calendar. Together with EMD, we have developed a set of rules and a format for schools to follow both at a local level and at the finals. One of our most popular and most anticipated competition hosted at the Copper Box, we see all the level 2 representative school teams come together to battle it out.


Research by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute proves that dancing reduces stress and tension for the mind and body.



GET in touch to compete

To get involved in our competitions, you will need to contact the BTO or SGO in your borough or via the LYG App where you can register your interest.

Only a BTO or SGO or nominated Team Manager can enter a competition. A borough can enter any number of Borough/ Open/ Schools competitions with a maximum of 1 team per competition. 

A competitor is eligible to represent a borough if they are a resident or attend a school or college of further education in that borough. You cannot represent more than one borough in the same competition but competitors are allowed to compete for different boroughs in different competitions.
