Beijing Dance Festival
The Biggest Open Platform of Contemporary Dance in China








The Beijing Dance Festival is one of the biggest celebration of dance in Beijing and among cities in China.  More than 250 dance artists, close to 200 dance students and more than 5500 audiences congregate in Beijing every summer.  These participants come from cities throughout China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, as well as North & Central America, Europe, Africa, and Asia across the world.


The Beijing Dance Festival is presented and jointly-organized by the BeijingDance/LDTX Dance Company, Guangdong Modern Dance Company (GMDC) and Hong Kong’s City Contemporary Dance Company (CCDC).  Together with the Guangdong Dance Festival, it has become one of the biggest contemporary dance network in China.  The Beijing Dance Festival began in 2008 as a one-week festivity alternating between international and China artist-focus every year.  Since 2012, it had combined both international and China artists and expanded to become two weeks duration.


The two-week Beijing Dance Festival is composed of two parts: First part as educational week while the second as performance week.
