Montpellier Dance Festival
At the cutting-edge of dance culture.
The Montpellier Dance Festival was created in 1981 as a crossroad for different dance forms and cultures. Traditional dances, prestigious international companies, experimental dance forms… This festival celebrates dance culture at every level.
Since it was set up, the Montpellier Dance Festival has been a mecca for choreographers and dancers of repute throughout the world. Over a thousand companies have performed at this festival in Montpellier bringing prestige and excitement with them - it has become one of the city's major cultural events. Every year, the festival program is broken into three phases: two performance seasons (spring and autumn) and a summer festival.
This festival's success is in part due to the intelligent combination of cutting-edge choreographic research and to the open-mindedness of both the artists and of audiences.
