22 Nov 2021

We’re thrilled to be able to announce even more fantastic work, as part of Dance Passion 2022!
 
Pulling together talent across all four nations, Dance Passion will feature works across all genres (including ballet, kathak, afrobeats, ballroom, contemporary, tap, voguing and more) from established and emerging companies such as The Royal Ballet, Ballet Black, Motionhouse, Rambert, Tap Attack, Vidya Patel, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Akram Khan, Candoco Dance Company, National Dance Company Wales and Simple Cypher – to name just a few!
 
These pieces will be broadcast on iPlayer in five hour-long programmes, introduced by Josie d’Arby and Karim Zeroual, from four hubs across the UK: with live segments from Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry – the current UK City of Culture – and three pre-recorded segments coming from Theatre Royal Plymouth’s TR2, Leeds’ Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and London’s Sadler’s Wells.
 
Dance Passion 2022 will also include the already announced fourteen BBC Arts and One Dance UK co-commissioned short films and interactive projects by UK-based professional and community dance companies, independent artists, choreographers, and associated technical partners based in dance education and dance medicine.
