Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage is delighted to announce a packed programme for Let’s Dance International Frontiers 2024 (LDIF24), Leicester’s annual dance festival.

LDIF24 launches on April 29, International Dance Day, with a new commission from fast rising choreographer, Raúl Reinoso, principal dancer with Acosta Danza, and concludes with the eagerly anticipated UK return of the legendary National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica.  Jamaica’s national dance company will present an electric mixed bill of legacy work and new pieces at Curve Studio, Leicester, on May 3 and 4. 

Let’s Dance International Frontiers is the creation of Pawlet Brookes MBE, LDIF’s dynamic Artistic Director who has, since 2011, steered the festival into becoming the UK’s leading platform for black dance.

Over the last 14 years, LDIF has grown into something really special, a gathering that people from all over the world travel to attend both as artists and audience members,” says Pawlet who is also co-founder and Artistic Director of Serendipity.

She continues, “This year we are delighted to present a rich programme headlined by the National Dance Theatre of Jamaica (NDTCJ), who return to the UK stage for the first time in over 10 years.”

LDIF24 presents live performances by UK and international artists, talks and discussions with dance practitioners hosted by Pawlet Brookes MBE, and street performances of dance, music, and poetry across the city.  There are opportunities to attend workshops, masterclasses and networking events.
