About Us

Pavilion Dance South West is the National Dance Development Organisation for the South West of England.

Our work centres around five priority areas: GROW (focus on artists, practitioners and performers), SHIFT & SHARE (focus on distribution and audiences), BOUNCE (focus on children and young people) and BREATHE (focus on participation and health).

In our Bournemouth-based venue, Pavilion Dance, we present dance performances, live screenings, art house films, exhibitions and more than 40 dance classes every week, and offer first-rate facilities for artists and practitioners to create, develop, share and try out work.
