British Dance Edition 2014 is over! Huge thanks to all the funders, venues, partner organisations, volunteers, artists and delegates for making the event such a huge success.  

British Dance Edition was hosted in Scotland for the first time in 2014. A biennial event, British Dance Edition is a showcase of the best of British dance for the UK and international dance industry. The showcase – which is an initiative of the UK’s National Dance Network took place in venues in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

British Dance Edition 2016 will be held in Cardiff – where it will be hosted by the Cardiff Consortium, led by Coreo Cymru with the Wales Millennium Centre, National Dance Company Wales, Chapter Arts Centre and Riverfront Theatre. The Cardiff Consortium looks forward to extending a warm Welsh welcome to you from 15 – 18 March 2016.

In 2018 British Dance Edition will be on the south coast in Bournemouth and Poole, led by Pavilion Dance South West. This will be the first time the event will take place in the Spring, in order to take advantage of coastal and open air opportunities – the dates for 2018 are 10 – 13 May.

Then in 2020 British Dance Edition will return to North East England after 20 years, when it takes place in Newcastle and Gateshead, led by Dance City from 30 January – 2 February 2020.
