Education & Participation

We believe that everybody has the right to express themselves through movement, dance and art.

We are committed to offering excellent creative dance education opportunities. Our home in Leicester offers a regular suite of activities available to the community. We work with world-class practitioners to deliver workshops, lectures, demonstrations and more.

We deliver education in many different ways, and we work with a range of partners to make sure the very best experiences and opportunities are available as widely as possible. We take active steps to make sure that our opportunities are accessible to people who may face barriers. We are planning a programme for children and young people to access opportunities with Arts Award accreditation, and make sure that our offer can support schools with ArtsMark.

This year we have piloted programmes which widen participation with early years, older people and people facing additional disadvantage (social barriers, disability or otherwise).

In these pages you can learn about the education opportunities we have available. If you would like to be involved, please get in touch.
