The ADAD Bloom Festival explores and celebrates dance from Africa and its Diaspora through performance, workshops and discussion. The event was first hosted in 2009 and has grown from a two-day event at Southbank Centre, London to encompass events in Bristol and Leeds. The Bloom Festival is celebration of dance of the African Diaspora presented by ADAD. It includes talks, film, open workshops, and an evening of performance that showcase a wealth of talent from around the UK, alongside international guests. The spirit behind this festival is ADAD's desire to cultivate artists who are rooted, confident and flourishing wherever they find themselves in Britain - 'blooming where they are planted'. The Bloom Festival aims to give a glimpse of the dance talent that is growing in our communities nationwide.
