International Bodrum Modern Dance Festival

In our country there have not been enough facilities or activities to promote modern dance, workshops or competitions. The most important aim of the modern dance schools was to train students to gain qualifications and to enter competitions. Although the interest in this dance style has increased, there was a serious decline in enrolled dance students. Bringing experienced foreign dance teachers to keep the dance techniques, training and creative influences up to date as well as arranging workshops

To overcome the challenges mentioned Bodrum Dance Club – BDK decided to introduce modern dance to Bodrum every year with the launch of the International Bodrum Modern Dance Festival.

During the festival, the dance instructors who have travelled from overseas will be holding the workshop and competitions at the hotel. The first day will be the workshop and on the last 2 days the competitions will be held. During the evenings, the dance instructors and dance students will be able to watch the dance shows arranged at the hotel. All students that have attended the workshop will receive a workshop certificate. Students entering the competition will receive a competition participation certificate, a trophy, medal and a certificate of competence.

Our organisation has managed to secure specially discounted prices for accommodation at a 5 star All Inclusive hotel during the workshop and these prices can only be secured when booking with us. While the dance students are attending the workshop programme, the families can use the facilities of the hotel, including 3 meals per day from the open buffet with unlimited drinks outdoor and indoor swimming pool, and free use of the Turkish bath, sauna and steam room. Any family or friends not staying at the hotel can pay a specially arranged daily fee to use the facilities.

The first ever International Modern Dance Festival was held in Bodrum in 2017 and we are happy to announce the 2020 International Bodrum Contemporary Dance Festival which will appeal to all age groups from 5 years old and up.
