Lift Off Festival

A celebration of dance and musical theatre

Lift Off Dance Festival is the annual dance festival held at South Hill Park Arts Centre since 2000.

The festival aims to offer the chance for everyone to experience dance as a participant, performer or audience member – and bring together those new to dance, or taking their first steps on stage, with those already established in the world of professional dance as a teacher, performer or choreographer.

Initially started by Bracknell Forest Council, South Hill Park took full ownership of the festival under the artistic direction of Lena Dee from 2005. It has grown over the past 2 decades to encompass a wide range of dance styles, ages, and abilities – as well as reaching far beyond Berkshire.

Each year the festival hosts several stunning dance performances by the local community and professional dance companies, alongside a variety of dance masterclass workshops, Dance on Screen cinema events, live dance performances broadcast from around the globe, and dance-inspired exhibitions.

Professional dance companies who have performed their own evenings’ work during the festival include; StopGap, Tavaziva Dance, Sonia Sabri and Jasmin Vardimon – to name just a few.

Whether you are a seasoned performer or theatre goer, or new to the world of dance, there is something to interest all tastes. It’s a truly great way to experience the art form. For more information see our dedicated Lift Off Festival page.
