Festival Malta

Dance Festival Malta is a multi-disciplinary festival that strives to cultivate a dance eco-system in Malta by providing dance students and professionals with a platform for intense training and professional development. Spread over four days in July the festival will host a series of workshops, masterclasses and performances that welcome the richness of the universal language of dance cultures, featuring international artists and choreographers. Through this varied programme, audiences and participants can be part of a unique festival that not only celebrates movement but aims to be a reference point where dancers forge links with the global dance community. Dance Festival Malta represents a re-examination of how we look at dance inviting you to share in a world of passion, movement and connection in Malta.
