Discover Dance in Newport this weekend

Tagged with:

The Discover Dance festival returns to Newport's The Riverfront and across the city from tomorrow, with opportunities to see a broad range of dance by both national and international dancers.

Dance groups set to take part in the festival range from ballet to breakdancing, while the festival includes performances, visual art exhibitions, films and even workshops for you to get involved if you so wish.

Performing at the Riverfront for the first time, Phoenix Dance Theatre will present a mixed programme of four different dance works, entitled Declarations.

On Friday Ballet Cymru will perform a version of Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood while on Saturday the Newport Centre will host the Welsh BBoy Championships, where you can see performances by some of the best breakdancers from all over the world.

There's also a series of dance exhibitions taking place. The Male Dancer features works by Roy Campbell-Moore, who founded the Diversions Dance Company in 1983 while the Rubicon Exhibition showcases dance and art images by Sharon Teear and documentary dance photography by Craig Allen and Juliette. There's also an interactive dance video experience called Duet For Three, in which two dancers on screen respond to your movements in front of it.
