The South West has a strong collaborative network of partner dance organisations covering almost every local authority.
We collaborate on events that take place right across the region such as the Cultural Olympiad and Big Dance and are increasingly looking to co-commission work for touring. We meet regularly to discuss issues and share information and act as a strategic "Engine Room" to drive action by a much broader partnership of dance organisations who share a passion for dance development.
Each partner dance organisation develops and promotes dance but has a unique flavour to what they do. The Regional Partners pages give you brief information about them and a link to their website where you can find out much more about their offer.
