Spaniards cannot imagine their life without music, so this big dance festival is considered to be one of the most important events of the year. Once again the organizers of the Madrid en Danza Festival plan to show the public how diverse and unpredictable a dance can be.
Unlike most similar events, this festival does not limit itself to any specific kind of dance. Here you can see both classical ballet and avant-garde plastic theatre, or ethnic dances from flamenco to Japanese "Buto." Performances are held in various theatres and cultural centres of Madrid, in particular in Teatros del Canal. Among the participants of the festival, there are famous dancers and choreographers, as well as beginning performers who are still gaining their place on the international scene.
The grand dance event takes place annually between late November through the first half of December.
