Live Performance

Summer 2017

We are looking forward to our second ever dance festival in July, Discover, Play, Dream: Dance!, which we hope will find a firm place in the annual festival calendar and encourage people to experience dance live and close-up. We look forward to seeing you around!

We have dance in museums and in Castlepoint Shopping Centre, on Boscombe High Street, in a drawing studio and on the beach. We have dance to admire, to laugh at, to draw and to take part in, and we will be presenting them in everyday places in- and outdoors. Pick just one or follow our map and seek out all of them - most are absolutely free!
