Generating exceptional experiences in dance We are the national development agency for dance in South East England. Our mission is to ensure a thriving ecology for dance in the South East, enhancing conditions for more, bolder and better dance. We aim to raise the profile of dance and will work with partners within and beyond the region to achieve this. Artists and communities are at the heart of all we do. We listen to, challenge and champion their needs and aspirations. South East Dance is supported by Arts Council England, Kent County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council.
