Our Values & History
We were founded in 1923 and since that time we have gained a reputation for excellence.
AED is a charity whose mission is to support growth and inclusion through dance. It is through competition we learn tenacity and many other attributes including self confidence, the ability to perform in public and most importantly of all, graciousness in participation.
The competition is a fun experience where brilliance is celebrated but taking part is everything.
Affiliated to the British And International Federation Of Festivals For Music, Dance and Speech of which Her Majesty the Queen is patron.
