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 an international community of 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.

Autumn Programme

ID’s programme is now taking a break during the summer months. We are in conversation with artists to plan for the Autumn, and are continuously assessing what is possible as the situation evolves. Keep following our social media and newsletter and we’ll announce more plans soon!
