Welcome to Birmingham International Dance Festival 2020!

We’re delighted to be back with our seventh festival, from 5 – 21 June, presenting fantastic dance in Birmingham’s theatres and taking over the city’s streets and squares with show-stopping free performances.

This year the festival is inspired by the themes of togetherness and the wide variety of voices in our diverse world, offering thrilling ways to experience dance, both watching and taking part.

Lucie Mirkova curator of BIDF 2020 says,

“Our outdoor programme will be showcasing some of the best dance performances currently touring, from across the world, as well as staging a packed weekend of social dance activity with workshops and lots of opportunities for everyone to try new styles or revisit favourites.

“Together with our great partners in venues throughout the city, you can expect our indoor programme to challenge the traditional ways of how audiences experience performance, and what belongs on a theatre stage, ranging from watching dancers as a 3D holographic image, to sinking into an enormous bean bag and joining a unique dreamlike immersive experience.”

Join us for an unmissable dance experience!
