We’re delighted to announce that registrations for the Outdoor Dance Collection 2021: UK Dance Showcase (3-4 June) are now open!

The UK Dance Showcase is a brand new showcase programme, delivered in partnership with Dance4 as part of Dance from England for Birmingham International Dance Festival‘s Outdoor Dance Collection 2021, which also includes the Dance & the Outdoors Symposium (8-9 June), delivered by 101 Outdoor Arts and The Place in partnership with DanceXchange as producers of BIDF.

The UK Dance Showcase will include artist pitching sessions from exciting new artists in the UK, Europe and North America; panel discussions and Q&As with experienced outdoor dance professionals; training sessions and facilitated networking opportunities.

National and international delegates will also have access to the Outdoor Dance Collection 2021 Catalogue, presenting a curated selection of some of the most exciting current outdoor work available for touring by UK dance artists. We’ll be launching the catalogue on our website later in the month, so watch this space!

Tired of Zoom webinars? Want to feel part of a wider community of delegates? The Outdoor Dance Collection 2021 will be hosted via virtual event platform Pheedloop, offering much more than your average online conference. From networking opportunities to virtual exhibitor halls, we’re revisiting the way we deliver digital events to give you the best of the virtual world.

If you’re a dance artist, promoter, producer or professional, the showcase offers the opportunity to meet, network and learn from experienced outdoor dance professionals from around the world.

We’ll be updating the programme with speakers and artists in the lead up to the event, but you can explore the programme and register your attendance by accessing the platform below.
