DanceEast in the community

Working in the community, bringing people to dance in the DanceHouse and bringing dance to people outside the DanceHouse, is core to why DanceEast exists in the first place. From our earliest days as Suffolk Dance we have always worked to give as many people the opportunity to experience dance as possible, in Ipswich, Suffolk and beyond.

Community Projects

DanceEast has been delivering innovative community projects for over thirty years, working with a range of partners on a local, national and international level. We enjoy introducing people to dance for the first time as well as developing and refining skills in more experienced dancers.

Projects can be open or targeted at very specific groups, sometimes short and intensive and sometimes run over long periods. We are open to new ideas and ways of working and always looking to make a difference to the lives of the people we work with.

This season we’re running projects for over 50s in Debenham and Sudbury, working with care homes in Ipswich and Stowmarket, and returning to community settings with our Care To Dance? programme for those living with dementia and their carers. We’ll also be launching a new class for adults with additional needs as well as delivering ongoing activity with The Avenues group, English National Ballet’s Dance for Parkinson’s, Moving Minds in collaboration with Inside Out and continue to work on the national, early years dance initiative, Little Big Dance.
