Welcome to the 5th Dubai International Dance Festival 2012. It was a great year for DIDF last year with an increase in audiences, higher accessibility through ticket offers, and a fantastic array of international and homegrown talent taking part in our highest number of performances yet!
So what will 2012 bring? Certainly not just ‘more of the same’ anyway. We’ll be bringing new groups to the Festival that have never set foot in Dubai, developing new performances and projects to delight participants and audiences alike and, of course, providing even better ticket offers!
The Festival is an unique multi-arts event and has a reputation for attracting some of the finest young dance companies, classical dance academies, youth orchestras, bands and music ensembles from around the region and the world.
The Festival is also a catalyst for the creation of new work and creative activity, with an education programme and artistic collaborations with organizations throughout the UAE, the Middle East, and the rest of the world.
Those who love music, dance and the passion, which we all share, bring the 5th Dubai International Dance Festival 2012 to you… This Festival is intended to bring something new and exciting to the dance scene in Dubai, the Middle East and the region as well as international dancers who wish to visit our wonderful city, Dubai…
