Let’s Dance International Frontiers

Let’s Dance International Frontiers (LDIF) is an annual international dance festival in Leicester, launching on the 29 April, International Dance Day.  Showcasing high quality dance that celebrates diversity and intersectional identities, to date has supported the work of 280 artists from over 46 countries

The theme for LDIF23 is Uncovering The Dance Within: Origins and Authenticity

We will be exploring a range of dance techniques and practice, looking at their history, heritage and honouring the guardians of their legacy, whether this is delving into hoofing, Talawa Technique or Nagare Technique and multidisciplinary ways of working.

The range of dance performances, masterclasses, conversations and our annual conference gives voice to how artists have reimagined and provided vision and reflection to little known techniques, forms and approaches to dance from the African and African Caribbean Diaspora.
