About Eurovision Young Dancers
Eurovision Young Dancers is open to solo dancers aged between 16 and 21, from countries of EBU Member broadcasters. The new format features solo performances by each participant, then a ‘group dance’, for which the dancers are divided into two groups. The jury then selects a finalist from each group and the two perform a dance-off dual to decide the winner. The competition is organised biennially, and up to 14 countries may take part in the next edition.
