The international event, essential for
anyone working in dance.
This event took place
13-15 November 2014
Wales Millennium Centre
Cardiff, Wales, UK

We presented our first international event for anyone working in dance in November 2014 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, where world-class artists, teachers and leaders came together for a programme of presentations, workshops and performances.

At the event, we announced a change in our name, from the Foundation for Community Dance to People Dancing. 

People Dancing, the international event, aimed to provide an opportunity to share practice and approaches to engagement across different international, social, economic and political contexts wherever and however people work in dance. 

Over 400 artists, teachers and leaders gathered from across the world to watch and talk about their work alongside inspiring and provocative keynote presentations from world-class figures.

Resources including presentations and film from the event will be made available on our website in early 2015.

Wales Commissions

As part of the People Dancing programme, we commissioned four artists / organisations in Wales to develop their practice and in three cases, create new performance works to be shared at the event. This programme was supported by the Arts Council of Wales and allowed the unique history, culture and infrastructure of community dance in Wales to be reflected in the international programme at the event.

Information from the creative processes of each of these artists / organisations, including photography and film are available to view here.
