Booking Dance Festival Showcase (Eight Dynamic Dance Companies From The USA In One Show)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

New York is known as the city that never sleeps and it wants to add Dance Capital to its CV; subsequently, Booking Dance Festival is here to do just that. The dancers have emerged from in and around NYC and if the rest dance like this, I believe we may have a winner. Each company delivers their account of life in The Big Apple, through ballroom, tap, contemporary, and everything else in between. Regrettably, the story slips on occasion, and perhaps a slight shake-up in the middle is needed to avoid a contemporary only-dance-show feeling. Yet, all in all, with the sheer talent, captivating grace, unparalleled energy and brilliant choreography throughout, it is impossible to be bored.

Venue 150 at EICC, 17 – 21 Aug, 2.00pm (3.30pm), £3.00 – £12.00, fpp169.
