Craig Hartley is selling a book of his poems to raise money for DanceSyndrome (more details available here) and this inspired us to think about the many ways that dance inspires art. We thought a competition would be a great way to bring together a collection of dance inspired art.


We want you to tell us about what dance means to you. Tell us how dance makes you feel, what’s special about dance for you, what makes you want to dance? If someone had never danced before how would you describe dance to them? You can write a poem or a short story, write and sing a song, draw or paint a picture, make a collage, take photos or make a short video. Get as creative as you like, we can’t wait to see what you come up with.


The entry fee is £1.50 per person and there are great prizes to be won for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, plus something special for everyone who enters. We’ll announce the winners at our Music and Dance Festival at Bartle Hall on Sunday 25th September.


If you want to enter please make your donation and download a copy of our entry form (using the “Buy Now” button below), then send it with your entry to or send it by post to DanceSyndrome, C/O Pathways Associates, Suite 2, Waterside, St James Court West, Accrington BB5 1NA



The proceeds from competition entries will enable DanceSyndrome to deliver more workshops in the community and continue to inspire people to follow their dreams.
