About South East Dance

We are an arts charity that works with dance professionals and people across the region to make the South East a thriving home for dance.

Our vision is a world where every body is empowered to create, take part in and enjoy dance in all its forms.

Our mission is to make dance happen for every body. Dance that is bold and diverse. Dance that helps us make sense of the world we live in. Dance that makes a difference. We will support people to discover their own relationship with dance, working with them to create the kind of activities they want. And we will work with artists who are committed to taking creative risks, pushing boundaries and challenging perceptions of what dance is and can be.

We support dance artists that specialise in all forms, from breakdancing to ballroom, with funding, tailored advice and networking opportunities throughout their careers. As passionate believers in the health and wellbeing benefits of dance, we also work hard to bring movement to as many people as possible too – particularly those who might not have had the opportunity or the confidence to give it a go before.
