Why come to Rise Dance Festival?

Why come to Rise Dance Festival?


Festival Manager Diane Smith explains what’s so special about Rise Dance Festival.

Well apart from the festival having the very best contemporary dance performers from across the UK, Europe and Australia; Findhorn is also the perfect place to spend your bank holiday weekend in May.

The festival is situated on the award-winning Moray coastline where seals, dolphins, wading birds and osprey are often seen. With miles and miles of beaches, dunes and forests nearby, there’s ample opportunity for a quiet relaxing amble or an adrenalin filled bike ride. Good food can also be found in local pubs and cafes, and our favourite thing to do is grab a drink at the marina and watch the sunset. The nearby town of Forres has a whisky distillery, craft brewery, award winning bakeries and butchers, and two sweetie shops! What more could you want?
