South East Dance
Brighton & Hove
South East Dance is a leading arts organisation focused on developing dance and Brighton is our home town. We are currently running a campaign called #SpaceToDance – to raise funds and awareness to help us build The Dance Space: a vibrant new home for dance in the heart of Brighton & Hove at Circus Street.
Due to open in 2018, The Dance Space will be a space for talented artists to explore, collaborate and create, and a space for local people to discover and get involved in dance on their doorstep. We want to ensure the best dance by the most talented artists gets made and that people from all walks of life can access greater opportunities to enjoy the exhilaration and health benefits of dance. We give artists the opportunity to discover new and surprising ways of exploring their creativity and developing their choreographic practice.
Our work happens locally in Brighton and Kent, in the South East region, and further afield across the UK, Europe and beyond. Over the past two years 185,000 people have benefited from our work. Most recently we supported 250 artists, co-commissioned 43 new dance works and presented 158 performances. We are a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee
