Dance United

Charity description

Dance United logo
Lives transformed through dance

We work with those who are marginalised in society and whose potential is often unrecognised or unfulfilled. Contemporary dance training and performance of the highest quality has the power to unlock this potential. Dance United delivers work that is tough, tightly-focused and highly disciplined. No hiding places, no short-cuts, no excuses. We have seen it work with young offenders, street children in Ethiopia, across the divide in Berlin and Northern Ireland. We reach the hard-to-reach.

Our participants experience moments of stillness and focus, a sense of confidence and power, and the exhilaration of achievement. In mastering the physicality of movement and daring to be creative, learning to trust and be trusted in return, something changes, something shifts. By pushing way beyond their own expectations, and those of others, they are inspired to define a new sense of self, and encouraged by their experience to recognise and seize the opportunities that may lie ahead.
