Founded in 1993, Greenwich Dance was established to provide a home for innovative dance creation, performance and community participation.
Occupying a unique place in the cultural landscape of South East London, it provided a place for both non-professionals and professionals to move, watch and create within a wide-ranging portfolio of activities including classes, performance projects, festivals and events. As such we consistently created opportunities for people to make, watch and take part in dance, regardless of age, experience or background.
Our programmes championed access and inclusion by using the arts and dance to challenge preconceptions and celebrate differences. It supported social cohesion, integration and well-being whilst creating moving moments of joyous colour and movement. It contained high quality training for community practitioners, artist development projects to support independent artists and companies and progression routes to support a skilled workforce for the creative industries. And it was built on strong partnerships and collaborations as we worked together with our neighbours to create a rich cultural offer for Greenwich and beyond.
