Leicestershire & Rutland

Dance4 leads on strategic dance development for Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland and works collaboratively with partners and venues across the city and counties.

We work particularly closely with Curve on commissioning and presenting new work and on youth dance including the annual youth dance platform Mass Movement and Curve Young Dancers.  Also with Embrace Arts we collaborate on artists residencies, improvisation events and dance and disability.


Dance has strong links to the professional and student dance community in Leicester, including at De Montfort University and the Quickshifts improvisation collective.


Strategically we have a regional partner, The Mighty Creatives and national partner, People Dance (formerly Foundation for Community Dance) both based in Leicester, with whom we connect regularly to support champion dance in education and community settings.
