Leap Dance Festival presents two weeks of dance events showcasing the Liverpool City Region’s talent across seven key venues this spring. From 26th April to 10th May 2024, Liverpool will come alive with dance, with performances taking place in theatres, cultural venues and public spaces on the streets of Liverpool city centre. 

Established local dance artists and companies perform alongside young people and community groups, in a range of styles from burlesque and breakdance to contemporary dance and a ceilidh, with tickets across all events ranging from £0-£25.

Liverpool’s vibrant dance sector also celebrates 15 new commissions, supported by grants, with local artists and organisations receiving funding. Many of these works will feature in the upcoming Leap Dance Festival. Find out more about each Liverpool Dance Commissions here.
