February 2021 - Application Process

Hello again everyone, We hope that you are all coping during these difficult times and keeping safe and well. After consultation with both Primary and Secondary Schools we have decided to move boldly forward with the Barnet Schools’ Virtual Dance Festival 2021.

As each school’s situation is different, there are no strict conditions of entry and all that we ask is that you submit a short film, max 5 minutes, celebrating dance and creativity in your school by 28 May 2021.

When all entries have been submitted, BPSS will have them professionally collated and edited to create an HD download film for each participating school. This download can then be shared with parents, students etc for free.

For BPSS members there are no costs involved. Non-member schools will cost £100.

If you would like to take part, please go to the website www.annefisher.co.uk and complete the application form.

We do understand that this is not binding as circumstances are constantly changing.

We really hope that some of you will embrace this project and inspire your students to keep on dancing.

What do I need to do?

Complete the application form before 26th February 2021.

Make a short film, max 5 mins, celebrating dance in my school and submit by Friday 28 May 2021.

How many dancers can I include? As many as you wish: Whole school challenge, year group bubble, class challenge, dance club

How can I do this? The music can be divided up into sections and given to different groups to work on in school or individually if at home. You can discuss stimulus, ideas, and process online and at school, sending clips from home and editing together with work in school.

I don’t know how to edit all the clips? Ask around in school or to parents/your community to see if they have any expertise in this area. Encourage students to be part of this process. Don’t worry at this stage as we will be here to support you through the process.

We are asking you to be creative within the limitations that you are experiencing just now....as if you haven’t enough on your plate!

After this initial introduction, Kim and Anne will be on hand to help and support you and of course provide a finale option so that we can unite all schools together in true Dance Festival tradition. We look forward to hearing from you and we are always on hand should you want to discuss anything further.

Kim, Anne & the BPSS Team
