ŻfinMalta - National Dance Company, creates and commissions extraordinary dance which engages and resonates with audiences nationally and internationally. Since its set up our company has pioneered fresh thinking about contemporary dance in the Maltese islands.

We work with the best artists, dancers and choreographers from the Maltese islands and across the world to create innovative productions, aspiring for everything we make to be of world class artistic quality.

We are committed to making work which shows the best that an outward looking, contemporary Malta can produce.

We aim to ignite greater interest in dance in the nation through productions which resonate with communities across the Maltese islands and beyond.
