Yorkshire Dance

Yorkshire Dance champions the development of dance in Yorkshire. We do so by raising standards, increasing knowledge and understanding and fostering creativity and innovation.

Yorkshire Dance is an advocate for dance, a centre of expertise, a catalyst and innovator. As both a dance development agency and choreographic workspace, we develop our role in the national eco-system for dance with particular expertise in innovative community practice and small scale work.

With a thriving creative workspace, where artistic talent is nurtured and developed, we ensure that choreographic talent and artistic leadership flourish, supporting the next dance leaders at the early stages of their career. Working with partners in health, sport and local authorities we create new opportunities for people to experience dance, in disadvantaged communities in Leeds and in areas of little provision in the region.
