Dance Reading Festival 19 is a celebratory festival of dance throughout November 2019 supported by Reading Borough Council and Arts Council England. With something for everyone, this ambitious festival features exceptional performances, engaging workshops and a whole array of dance events that invite audiences of all ages to discover new experiences with dance.
Dance Reading (formerly Junction Dance) was formed in 2014 by a team of diverse dance professionals, with the specific goal to develop better opportunities for dance artists and audiences in Reading. We work in close partnership and collaboration with a wide range of organisations and individuals to improve, inspire, motivate and celebrate dance in Reading.
In early 2015 Junction Dance set-up the Reading Dance Professionals Network (RDPN), which meets monthly to provide networking opportunities, funding advice, mentoring and industry support. RDPN has a growing group of active members and our facebook page is a hub for local job opportunities, signposting, marketing and vital industry mechanics.
