Now in its 10th Year, Salford Dance Explosion is a three day dance festival involving around 500 children from schools and community dance groups from across the North West. To celebrate our 10 years we are branching out and welcoming an adult group who will also be taking part this year. 

Join us for three exciting evenings to celebrate the talents and diversity of our young, and not so young, people in Salford and beyond as we welcome schools and groups from further afield. 


“This show has proved phenomenally successful. Karen Acton, the organiser is a veritable bundle of energy.” Tom Rodgers Salford Online
