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.

Last week our Young1'z and some of our other young members took part in a week long dance residency to create a wonderful new piece of work for COP26! 🌍

They then performed it for the first time on Friday, as part of the celebrations for the Govan Housing Association's 50th Birthday, and we have a sneak peak of the performance below 👇

Keep an eye out for more performances and clips in the future 👀

Earlier this week our team took part in the BILD conference in Glasgow, where we had a stall, gave out some awards, and most importantly of all, we danced. 💃

We taught everyone some ceilidh dancing and we loved the opportunity to dawn ourselves some tartan! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
