The Aldershot and Farnborough Dance Festival is held every year in the spring as part of the Aldershot and Farnborough Festival of Music and Art, and has been in existence since 1941. It is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals, and is supported by Rushmoor Leisure.

The Festival will be held as usual at the Samuel Cody Sports College in Cove. Until recently this was known as the Oak Farm Centre, and prior to that Oak Farm School. However, regular visitors to our Festival will note that the venue is identical to that of previous years.

The 2022 Festival is an All-England qualifying Festival.

Details are on this website of the syllabus, how to enter, fees, and how to find Samuel Cody College.

The Dance Festival is now fully subscribed, and is closed for further entries. Schools are welcome to submit entries to be put on a reserve list, but it is very unlikely in practice that we will be able to accept them.
