The Royal Academy of Dance has announced a new art competition for primary schools from Battersea and across Wandsworth.
Launched to celebrate the new global headquarters which will be opened in spring next year, entrants are asked to submit a drawing or painting inspired by dance and how it makes them feel.
The top prize is a personalised dance workshop for the whole class and a tour of the new building.
The artwork will also be displayed in the headquarters.
The winning entry and runners up will be picked by a judging panel of RAD President Dame Darcey Bussell and Artistic Director, Gerard Charles and former dancer Shevelle Dynott.
Darcey Bussell said: “Dance is connected to every art form, and at this exciting moment in the RAD’s history we wanted to launch our first ever art competition created especially for schoolchildren across the borough.
The panel of judges are so looking forward to what our young budding artists are inspired to create.
