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 #CarersRightsDay.

We would like to recognise the hard work, support and dedication from all carers.

Carers Rights Day is annual awareness day that recognises the valuable contribution of the UK's unpaid carers.

This year's Carers Rights Day campaign focuses on raising awareness of the rights that unpaid carers have.

The pandemic has had a massive impact on the lives of carers, affecting access to services, the ability to juggle work and care and much more. That's why it’s more important than ever that carers are aware of what they have the right to.

Have you heard about the Doodle Club? 🎨🤔

The Doodle Club is where Indepen-dance members get really creative!

As well as dancing we have a go at drawing, painting, thinking and chatting about all kinds of ideas.

Here’s what some of our members have said about the Doodle Club:
‘It has helped me quite a bit… it helps you to concentrate’

‘Helped me with my confidence… when somebody has an idea we all just gel on to it’

‘Relax and calm and dancing and smile’

‘It’s therapeutic to me… it helps me to be more creative’

‘I think the Doodle Club is the best club ever!’

If you like the sound of that, good news – you’re invited!

Everybody is welcome in the Doodle Club. We get together online every Monday at 5pm – or, we can send you activities to do at home any time that suits you.

Either way, just contact us at admin@indepen-dance.org.uk to get involved!
