Co-produced by Birmingham Hippodrome and our partner DanceXchange we welcomed dancers from 18 countries who performed at 19 venues across the city-region and,  over 12,000 people enjoyed 21 performances on the streets!

This year saw audience figures rise with a programme featuring more events than any previous festival.  Truly city wide in scope, nineteen venues helped see attendances at the 43 ticketed performances rocket by 30% from the 2012 festival to over 21,000 people.

The festival was also boosted with the help of our media partner BBC  WM 95.6 who produced a special film #Brummoves  showcasing music and dance from the region.  If you haven’t already you can watch the film here



A very,  big thank you to all the amazing and talented dancers, companies, venues, supporters and of course a special thank you to our audiences for helping to make the 2014 festival so successful – here’s to 2016!
