Welcome to Birmingham International Dance Festival 2021!

We’re delighted to be back with our seventh festival, from 3-13 June 2021, which will be presented online on our brand new dedicated digital platform BIDF TV. 

Join us for a host of lively screendance performances and new film commissions, plus plenty of opportunities to take part in workshops and activity, to brighten up your summer in a joyful, inspiring, celebration of dance and togetherness.

The new programme will go live in May, so keep visiting to keep up to date, or join our mailing list and follow us on social media.

We are also planning an Autumn edition of the festival, which will be announced later in the year and will offer a live – socially distant – outdoor programme including local touring, youth engagement and co-productions.  More news to follow soon.
