The committee of the North Devon Dance Festival would like to extend a warm welcome to all supporters, old and new.  We are fortunate to be able to host this fantastic festival in the great surroundings of Kingsley School, Bideford.

The organisers strive to promote an atmosphere that is friendly and supportive to all taking part, and everyone is awarded a certificate of achievement along with a written mark and comment sheet from the adjudicator.


The festival is run by a small team of dedicated volunteers who have all been involved in the dance scene for many years in a variety of capacities.  They will do their very best to help with any queries or concerns you may have during the event but please take the time to read our Regulations and information guide which should answer many common questions that may arise.
