The 2012 edition of Oxford’s very own dance festival, Dancin’ Oxford, opens on Saturday 18th February and continues through until Wednesday 28th March, with an exciting programme of theatre performances, open air events, workshops, exhibition and talks, including the Digital Dance Trail and the Dance and Academia one day symposium.  Guest companies include festival favourites Tavaziva Dance Company in Sensual Africa, aerial dance Compagnie Retourament in their spectacular Danse des Cariatides, Sonia Sabri Company in Kathakbox, and Blanca Li Company in Electro Kif.  Contributions from Oxford based artists include Flamenco Intimo, A Suitcase for all occasions by Paulette Mae, and the Moving with the Times showcase of work by Oxford dance artists, to say nothing of the ever popular Dance-A-Thon programme of taster workshops and a day of intergenerational dance led by the established Oxford company Crossover.

Don’t forget to purchase a Festival pass to gain reductions on ticket prices and other benefits.
