The UK Street Dance Challenge are super excited to be bringing you our OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS in July 2021. We are unsure when we are able to return to live events so we wanted to take the stress out of trying to qualify for what would have been our first GRAND FINAL and just bring you a fun filled weekend of dance, making memories & having a great time with friends.

The Venue

Situated in the heart of the UK, TIC’s hugely accessible location offers all the benefits of a city centre, without the hustle and bustle.

Following a £250 million investment, the purpose-built Convention Quarter was created with modern day event organisers in mind. Sitting opposite the main venue, it features a host of restaurants, bars, hotels, and leisure facilities. Telford town centre is just a short walk away, providing further opportunities for entertainment and activities.

How to qualify?

There is no need to qualify for the OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS, this is open to all dancers & dance schools. All dancers will be able to compete in all events at the event, for example solo, duo, quad & team. Some events such as battles/parents & child may have restrictions applied and only a certain amount per dance school will be able to compete.

Transport Links

Telford is within just three hours’ commute of over 70% of the UK population. Birmingham is just 45 minutes away, Liverpool and Manchester just an hour and a half, London two and a half hours, Cardiff, three hours, and Glasgow five hours. By road the M54 links Telford and Shropshire to the M6 and the M6 Toll, avoiding the congestion of Birmingham, and we’re also served by major A roads including the A49, A41 and A5.

By Rail we have a direct rail service to London, as well as regular services from West Midland Railway, Arriva Trains and Virgin to destinations across the UK.
