Fancy writing for the Guardian?

You could get a chance if you enter the Guardian’s Young Arts Critic Competition.

The overall winner will get to attend an event with a Guardian critic and write about it for G2, the Guardian’s art edition. Dance is one of eight categories so why not review a dance show that has an impact on you for a chance of winning.
