Raising a toast to the DDF2020 artists

Raising a toast to the DDF2020 artists

Today marks the date when DDF’s live programme was due to open. We’d like to say thank you to the brilliant artists and companies who were programmed to present work and to those who were due to lead a workshop, discussion or event.

And a big thank you to our funders, sponsors, partners and DDF Friends; our arts colleagues at home and abroad; our Board members; our venue partners; our volunteers who show up for us year after year; and our incredible audience members who share our passion for dance. We greatly appreciate your continuing support and generosity.

Meanwhile, we look forward to sharing our DDF Digital Capsule with you, over 10 days from 29 May – 7 June so we can continue to share dance and connect. Sign up to the DDF Mailing List to be the first to get all the updates and news.

Stay well and keep dancing!
