I understand that by completing and submitting this Application Form, I am agreeing that Youth Dance England can
store my details for the purposes of organising U.Dance 2012 and associated activities. I understand that if my group
is selected for U.Dance 2012:
  Each group member and chaperone will need to pay YDE a contribution towards catering and accommodation of
     £130 (or £50 for London based groups) by 22 June 2012 or we will not be able to attend the event.
  Groups will need two chaperones who are aged 21 or over and they will have responsibility for the dancers in the
     group whilst they are at the event.
  Chaperones will need to represent the gender of the dancers in the group and therefore if there are both male
     and female dancers, there will need to be both a male and female chaperone and that all chaperones will need to
     have had a CRB check.

NB: Groups applying from outside of London will need to have 15 or fewer dancers in their group. London based
groups are able to have up to 25 dancers, as they will not be provided with accommodation during U.Dance 2012.
