South East Dance is a leading arts organisation focused on developing dance.

We want to ensure the best dance by the most talented artists gets made and that people from all walks of life can access greater opportunities to enjoy the exhilaration and health benefits of dance. We give artists the opportunity to discover new and surprising ways of exploring their creativity and developing their choreographic practice.

Our work happens locally in Brighton, in the South East region, and further afield across the UK, Europe and beyond. Last year we connected with over 88,000 people. We supported 666 artists, co-commissioned 43 new dance works and presented 106 live performances

We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
