Step Live Festival 2023

Young dancers from across London took to one of London’s most prestigious stages for Step Live Festival, an annual celebration of dance.

All of the students that were involved in the performance are part of Step into Dance, a Royal Academy of Dance programme in partnership with the Jack Petchey Foundation.

Step Live Festival took place on Tuesday 4 July at Cadogan Hall. There were two performances, at 14:00 and 19:30. Each show featured different schools from the Step into Dance programme.
