Alongside our annual festival we offer exciting year-round creative learning opportunities to inspire people of all ages to experience the power of the body in motion.

We create opportunities for people to watch, participate in, discuss and engage with high quality dance provision that celebrates the diversity and breadth of contemporary dance.

From immersive early years dance in theatres to large-scale, outdoor intergenerational shows, we produce bespoke projects, events and activities that aim to increase access to contemporary dance for more people across London and supports our goal, to take dance out and bring people in.

Much of the creative learning work we do is underpinned by a diverse range of partnerships that we make with other dance, arts, charity and public sector organisations. These essential partnerships allow us to deliver the work we do in more effective and meaningful ways as well as reach a greater number of people.
