A DANCE showcase will take place at the Hawthorne Theatre in Welwyn Garden City this weekend.

The Campus West complex hosts the sixth Unified Dance Showcase on Saturday.

Appearing this year will be acts who have appeared on shows like Got To Dance and Britain’s Got Talent, including Peridot, Project G, Second Self and Trilogy

One of the organisers, Brendon Hansford from WGC-based Alter Ego Dance Studio, said the event was designed to unify the dance community.

He said: “Each year we manage to pull in the best dancers/dance groups from across the UK to perform in support of our dedicated cause.

“The idea for Unified was inspired by a London dance event called ‘Stylefest’, where a discussion forum among dancers highlighted the need for the dance community to pull together and support each other rather than promoting the atmosphere of rivalry that seems to have become commonplace.”

This year’s showcase promises to be bigger than the rest, with a line-up of the 24 dance groups, including three that featured on Got To Dance and another that did very well on Britain’s Got Talent.
