Whipping up a dance storm: David Massingham on International Dance Festival Birmingham

If you havent seen it yet, over on the International Dance Festival website theres an interview with director of DanceXchange and co-director of the festival David Massingham.

With titbits from the 2010 festival revealed and talk of Birmingham becoming a national centre for dance, its worth having a read.

Heres a snippet to tempt you:

Birmingham is a multicultural city and dance is a non-narrative form in many respects dance and a mixed society of people go together very well.

We hope that audiences who might go and see one thing will then go and try something else. Were trying to go deeper into the city and make sure were on the world stage; putting Birmingham on the map as a dance destination. London is amazing but we can do it too.
