Dance Film 09

Following its debut in 2007 Dance: Film is back with a packed season of screenings, talks and workshops to get you up en pointe with excitement. The ten-day festival, jointly run by Dance Base and the Filmhouse, features classics like Swing Time, the Scottish premiere Perhaps Love, and climaxes with Flashdance. If you’re stirred to give it a go yourself, workshops like Tap Like Fred and Om Shanti Om: Bollywood are for everyone from enthusiastic beginners to seasoned shufflers.

Filmhouse & Dance Base, Edinburgh, Thu 21–Sat 30 May.
