Meet Ignition Dance Festival 2017's choreographers
17th May 2017

Taking place at the Rose Theatre Kingston, Ignition Dance Festival, now in its fourth year, has become a mark in the dance calendar.

Following a nationwide search, new work by seven award-winning choreographers will be performed for the first time at this unique showcase.

Ignition supports mid-career choreographers to create new choreography.

Supported by the Royal Borough of Kingston and Arts Council England, the Ignition line-up includes artists from Kathak, Contemporary, Neo-classical and Dance-Theatre backgrounds.
