About us

Greenwich Dance is the home of dance in South East London. An extraordinary meeting place for artists, audiences and communities; we make the space for great dance to happen through incubation, creation, participation and performance. We challenge perceptions and change lives through excellence and innovation. Greenwich Dance aims to set the standard for dance locally, nationally and internationally.

“A fantastic space where artists can create, teach and do whatever they need to grow… free from the oncoming traffic of pressure and expectation.”
Akram Khan, dance artist

Greenwich Dance was set up in 1993 to provide a meeting place for professional dance artists and the local community. It is a registered charity, and one of a network of organisations in the UK who wish to develop and support the careers of professional dancers and to promote dance for all.

Greenwich Dance’s home is The Borough Hall, a Grade II* listed building that provides rehearsal, teaching and administrative space. It is an artist-centred dance space with a strong local identity. The organisation also promotes and delivers a range of activities throughout Greenwich and beyond in a range of venues including schools, community spaces and sheltered housing to ensure that everyone has access to high quality dance activities.

Our work with 13-18 year olds is supported by Charlton Athletic Community Trust.
