MOVE IT is the UK’s biggest yearly dance event and once again, Kensington Olympia was filled to the brim full of budding dancers and enthusiasts alike.
For three days, the place was filled with freestyle sessions, back to back classes taught by some of the biggest choreographers in the UK, dance battles, interviews with the industry experts and of course the main shows that drew in a spectacular audience every other hour.
However it isn’t all fun and games – MOVE IT is a serious networking event, with performing arts schools and companies handing out various info (and sweets to entice you), you would definitely be spoilt for choice by how many were present. If the sweets didn’t win you over, the talent they showcased would have. There was a even a moment when I got slightly carried away and I was trying to figure out what school to attend. Then reality danced its way back into my head, unfortunately I’m not a dancer (wearing the official MOVE IT t-shirt, won’t make my feet think otherwise either).
Highlights include: Urdang’s Dance School performance to Backstreet Boys, transforming me back to my 14-year-old-screaming-at-the-top-of-my-lungs-over-my-favourite-boyband-ever-EVER-self.

It’s not often you find a central spot in London that accommodates dance the way MOVE IT does – A perfect place to be if you want to take dance as a career, take alternative classes for fitness or just like me, an avid fan of the art.
Will see you and your dancing shoes there next year!
