We donated £900 to Khalsa Aid after our 1st festival!
This festival is run and organised by volunteers.

We envisage, that in the future this yearly dance festival in Hebden Bridge will develop into a whole weekend event in October, if we have enough volunteers.

Our VISION for the Hebden Bridge Dance Festival in October

"We Came To Dance"

2 minute video about why we are here - and the importance to dance.
"We began with rhythm. From the beating of our mother’s heart to the first kick in our mother’s womb. We were born to move.
‘We Came To Dance’ combines this rhythm that we all share, with the rhythm of music, dance and an epic piece of spoken word" [produced by New York based Tasha Blank]

For 2017 we've got a grant
from the Calderdale Council's
"Community Festivals and Events Fund"
