“I loved every part of the festival that I attended. It was educational, inspiring, challenging and joyful.”

DanceLive is an annual festival celebrating contemporary dance. The Festival presents the best contemporary dance in the North East, and provides a platform for new work, particularly that of local choreographers and dancers. The Festival was recognised in Creative Scotland’s Dance Sector Review and won Creative Cultures Scotland Award for Best Festival 2012 (public vote).

DanceLive presents a programme of work from large scale to studio sharings, from national and international companies, including cutting edge new work, showing critically acclaimed contemporary dance that otherwise would not be programmed in Aberdeen and/or Scotland and programming for new and family audiences, as well as providing opportunities for people to engage and take part through an associated programme of film, talks, school and community workshops and masterclasses.

The festival showcases new dance talent through a programme of studio performances of new work by emerging choreographers and a platform for work produced by Citymoves and work commissioned from local dancers, choreographers and companies.

DanceLive is produced by Citymoves Dance Agency the dance agency for North East Scotland.
