Performance Groups

WELCOME TO DANCEEAST’S PERFORMANCE GROUPS

DanceEast Performance Groups showcase excellence in dance across the East of England. There are five groups for different ages, abilities and levels of experience, meeting weekly to create and rehearse performances.

As a member of a Performance Group you will get the chance to represent DanceEast at various local, regional and national platforms. During the year you may get the chance to collaborate with other community-based dance companies, the DanceEast Centre for Advanced Training and incredible guest dance artists. Participation requires commitment throughout the academic year and may require additional rehearsals and project work.

If you would like to take part, apply to join a taster session in September: email performance.groups@danceeast.co.uk
