Our community is really important to us.
We aim to:
- To create accessible, diverse and creative dance participation and performance opportunities with, by and for the communities of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
- To create a sense of belonging and ownership whereby the local residents of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole can see themselves on our stage, in our studio and making work.
- Create an engagement programme that is reflective of the myriad of communities that live, work and study in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
In this section you’ll get a glimpse into some of our work that is more bespoke, community-led and in partnership.
