11th European Dance Festival

Published on Saturday May 3rd, 2008

A very important international dance meeting with the participation of 15 European countries is going to be presented the next two months at the Rialto Theatre. A feast of contemporary dance meets all the trends, the dynamics and the new forms of the international contemporary scene through the works of representative groups of each country.

The Ministry of Education and Culture, has proceeded with the initiative of introducing the institution of the “European Dance Festival” 11 years ago. The increased level of participation by EU member states with performances and workshops is a clear indication that the Dance Festival is becoming an annual highlight of the European arts and culture scene.
