Now in its tenth year, the Baxter Dance Festival will take place from 09 to 18 October 2014, showcasing dynamic and diverse local and international dance. To celebrate a decade of outstanding performances, this hugely popular festival will showcase the best and most diverse local and international talent in dance and dance choreography.


Following the success of I Hit the Ground Running last year, comes the second dynamic collaboration between the Baxter Theatre Centre and Scenkonst Sörmland (Sweden), Struck Silent at the Baxter Flipside for one week only, from 9 to 13 September at 6.30pm, with a matinee on 13 September at 2pm.

The Cape Junior Ballet Company (CJB), Cape Town’s leading junior ballet company, will present six performances of In The Spotlight from 25 to 28 June 2014, featuring the company’s talented dancers in various classical works and a new contemporary piece.


Tossie van Tonder will be performing her developed What Does the Earth Think It Is? in 2 sneak preview performances before it travels to the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown where it performs on the Main (as opposed to the Fringe!).
