Our annual Open Doors event is a community celebration of movement and dance across the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole region.

This year we saw over 80 performers across the local community come together for dance workshops, performances and a dance art exhibition based on sessions with Richard Chappell Dance and choreographer Joseph Toonga.

Our packed theatre enjoyed a diverse range of styles and cultural dance from BEAT Street Dance, Colores Mexicanos, Anonymous Morris, Bournemouth and Poole Chinese Angel Arts Association, Afro Fusion dancers Elizabete Fortes Andre and Jo Griffin from our Business Come Dancing event and a selection of Indian Dance artists.  The party carried on in the foyer with Latin DJ William Hernandez Abreu!  A huge well done and thank you to a wonderful community of dancers, artists and performers for making it such a great way to open our doors to 2023.
