“Maybe this is the year, this is the moment, this is the dance where your lives will start!”

Somewhere in America, a revolution is coming.

An army of competitive dancers is ready to take over the world, one routine at a time.

With a pre-teen battle for power and perfection raging on and off stage, Dance Nation is a ferocious exploration of youth, ambition and self-discovery.

Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and The Relentless Award, Clare Barron’s explosive new play Dance Nation makes its UK debut this summer, directed by Bijan Sheibani (The Brothers Size, Young Vic; Barber Shop Chronicles, National Theatre).
