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.

Indepen-dance is extremely disappointed to announce the cancellation of the International Inclusive Dance Festival – Gathered Together 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We appreciate your contributions to the hard work in planning the festival programme but, following Government advice to ensure the safety of all, it is not possible to host the festival this year.
As you are aware, we are no longer able to offer our normal activities because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a very strange and worrying time but I wanted to reassure you that the Board are working closely with the management team to try to ensure the future financial sustainability for the Company, so as normal activities resume we are able to offer our full programme again.
It is most important that we keep you all safe during the Coronavirus crisis.
It is with regret that we have agreed that all of our classes and other dance activity should be cancelled at the moment and although we are really sorry about doing it this is the best thing to do right now
