Opportunity through
inclusive dance

 

We work to promote a diverse and inclusive society

One which is not only enriching but is the foundation of a more substainable future for everyone, in the dance field & beyond.

Our artistic approach is to ensure the arts & dance in particular, is inclusive

and that children, young people & adults who are disabled are fully included in the creative process.

All of our activities are offered to disabled & non-disabled People

Providing everyone with the opportunity to learn from each other and share a creative experience

Indepen-dance is an award winning inclusive dance company for disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy, express, and fulfil their potential through dance. Our mission is to enable participation in high quality arts provision and improve wellbeing, quality of life and provide opportunities for disabled and non-disabled dancers in both the professional and non-professional dance sectors. We provide weekly creative movement and dance classes throughout the year, where participants become lifelong members and join a thriving social network. We also provide bespoke professional training, career development and employment opportunities.

Today is International Day of People with Disabilities.

This year, International Day of People with Disabilities should be used to recognise that people who live with disabilities are among the most affected populations amid the COVID pandemic.

Where marginalisation, discrimination, vulnerability and exploitation are every day factors for many people, the increased risk of poor outcomes have been magnified with the reduced access to routine health care and rehabilitation services, more pronounced social isolation, poorly tailored public health messaging, inadequately constructed mental health services, and a lack of emergency preparedness for people with special needs.
