Welcome to Independent Dance

Independent Dance (ID) is an artist-led organisation working responsively to support and fuel dance artists in all roles, at all stages of their career, and of all physicalities.

We nurture a practice-led, peer-supported international community of dance artists, with a particular focus on inclusive body-based research enriched by cross-disciplinary and diverse approaches.

Our programme of classes and workshops, led by internationally renowned artists and complemented by projects and events, invites artists and audiences to deepen enquiry and exchange ideas.
