Indepen-dance is an inclusive dance company for disabled people and their carers, to enjoy, express, and fulfill their potential through dance. Our purpose is to enable participation in high quality arts provision and improve the health, quality of life and opportunities for disabled people. We provide a core programme of weekly creative movement and dance classes throughout the year, as well as a career in dance and employment opportunities. Participants become lifelong members and join a thriving social network. Indepen-dance nurtures people to experience improved health, well-being, confidence and communication skills. Our artistic approach is to ensure the arts and dance in particular, is inclusive, that children, young people and adults who have physical and/or learning disabilities are fully included in the creative process of making, performing and being an audience for dance. All our activities are offered to people with and without disabilities. Providing everyone with the opportunity to learn from each other and share a creative experience.
