Life in Devon is an adventure and we believe dance is the only way to ride.
As a charity for happier and healthier communities, we’re here for each other every hop, skip and step of the way.
We’re here for the good times; the knees up, the laughter, the performance of a lifetime.
And when life gets the better of you – when physical or mental health aren’t on your side – we’ll move you forward with a dose of dance. We’ll give life new meaning. We’ll bring you joy on the darkest of days.
With dance in your life; your voice will be heard, your mind will brighten, your body will discover expression.
All in all, life is better when we move together.
When we dance through life.
Long live dance, long live Dance in Devon.
We are a registered charity (1132898) and company limited by guarantee (4777443). Our innovative dance projects are imagined and realised with our partners across the county, often in unusual spaces and places, through strong participatory work including: community celebrations, dance for older people in residential care, young people and mental health, artist development and early years work. We develop dance adventures for the people of Devon and beyond and we work with the highest calibre of artists to share the very best dance experiences.
Our charitable purpose is the foundation of our aims to:
Develop progressive dance engagement, learning and performance experiences in Devon that are always for the benefit of the public and that challenge ideas about what dance can be.
Facilitate social and recreational dance activities in Devon which are accessible to all regardless of age, ability or social and economic circumstances, in the interests of health and wellbeing.
