Every May, a committee of third-year BA Dance Studies students at the University of Roehampton curates and runs a six-day festival showcasing the work of students, Third Row Dance Company, and external artists. A wide range of classes and talks are offered during the day, with varied mixed bills in the evenings – all open to the public. The organising committee is mentored by Toby Beazley, an experienced festival organiser.
Launched in 2011, it was called the Roehampton Dance Festival 2011-2013, Footprint Dance Festival 2014-2016, and This is Dance Festival in 2017. This website brings together information on all the past festivals.
