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.

Our Monday class tomorrow will be taught by Eve Mutso!

Eve's class is inspired by shapes & shadows. In the workshop you will dance/move with your own shadow (use natural light or lamp in your home that you can create wee shadows with).

"Together we will create shapes, movement and learn fun ways of interacting with your own shadow."

If you want to find more inspiration, Indepen-dance Board will show you how you can connect with your own shadow too in the video link below.

To take part in Eve's class please get in touch with Shaun at admin@indepen-dance.org.uk.

Announcement – Cancellation of Gathered Together Festival 2020

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.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Latest – 7th April

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.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Update

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
