About South East Dance

South East Dance is an arts charity committed to making life better through dance. We challenge perceptions of what dance looks like: how it’s made, who it’s for and what it can achieve. We support dance artists, present bold new work, develop the infrastructure for dance and get more people across the south east involved in dance. 

In 2017/18 more than 203,000 people connected with our work – either live or digitally. We presented 66 performances engaging live audiences of over 11,000 people; we supported the development of 430 artists from the UK and overseas; and we provided opportunities for over 9,000 individuals aged 0-94 to participate in our dance workshops and classes.

South East Dance is the driving force behind The Dance Space, a brand new home for dance in Brighton & Hove opening in 2020.
