About Us

Founded in 1993 and based centrally within the Borough at Charlton House, Greenwich Dance finds inspiring spaces for innovative dance creation, performance and community participation: creating quality opportunities to make, watch and take part in dance regardless of age, background or ability.

We work with world-class artists and practitioners to support them to make and bring their work to the community we live and work within, here in South East London. We then present this work in performances, events and festivals alongside a programme of creative dance classes for ages 0 – 100+, in collaboration with a network of likeminded venues and organisations across the borough of Greenwich and beyond.

We believe you don’t have to be a trained dancer to move or create. We work with older people, younger people and everyone inbetween to create inspirational opportunities to enjoy the act of moving together, making together and celebrating what it is to be you. These experiences we then share with professional artists to ensure the creative cycle continues…. investing in people, in dance and in you.

Of the utmost importance to us is the ability to share ideas and learn about each other so that we can build better programmes that reflect the cultural influences, ideas and personalities of the artists and communities we work with.

What they say about us

Today I had my first contemporary dance class with Greenwich Dance and it felt amazing! (I mean I'm terrible at it, but I had so much fun). Thanks for offering dance classes at such affordable rates

Francesca Gallo

There are a few dance styles that I would love to explore more in depth in the future as dance is a universal language connecting people and places and promoting wellbeing and a sense of belonging. I am very grateful for this gift and I will never stop learning and practising. Thank you Greenwich Dance!


The leaders were great and engaged well with the girls throughout the day. The tasks were all accessible for the students to do and there was a variety of tasks on offer.
