The dance programme

Super Local Heroes is Bombastic’s brand new show created especially for Family Dance Festival.

Four misfit superheroes on mobility scooters arrive to ask the audience to dance, chat and interact with them and participate in a surreal and fun mission to help neighbourhoods across Wales.

These super local heroes’ will be popping up throughout the show to entertain and introduce the guest companies including...

I am 8

Sweetshop Revolution’s: I am 8, is a light-hearted and charming lyrical piece with four dancers that was commissioned by London’s Sadler’s Wells and The Place.

It presents a world in which children’s stories and dancer’s lives blend in a tale of discovery, spanning what it's like to anywhere between 8 and 28 years old.

Cardiff-based Kitsch & Sync Collective make curiously quirky dance theatre and performance and are regularly featured in festivals across the UK.

Hello Buoys

Follow three dinghy-less damsels as they dip their toes and cause a splash on their seafaring voyage.

Looking for a captain to guide them to sun-kissed beaches, can these ladies of leisure be pointed in the right direction or are they hopelessly helpless in their tropical quest?

Local young dance groups will be adding something extra special to the show with a diverse range of dance styles. Here’s your opportunity to see young talents doing their thing.

Suitable for all ages
