Dance Manchester

Dance Manchester is Greater Manchester’s central dance organisation, providing a whole range of opportunities for dance. We are a charity working to increase access to high quality dance activity to under-represented communities, working throughout the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester; in partnership with local authorities, communities, educators & artists. We run creative projects throughout the region & offer advice & information.
We specialize in developing dance for the outdoors & in unusual spaces, we want to break boundaries & offer new experiences both to artists & audiences. Dance Manchester’s work ranges from a number of exciting community projects in the Greater Manchester districts such as ‘Stride’ & ‘Signatures’, to the biennial international festival, ‘Urban Moves’, as well as lots in between! Working closely with dance artists & companies, arts organisations, community groups, venues, local authorities & funders; we aim to continue to increase opportunity for dance in our area, & to help put the region firmly on the dance map!
