About Us

Dance in Leeds (c) Chris Sands

We’d like to thank you – along with thousands of dance artists, audience members, participants in classes, board members, staff and funders – for playing your crucial role in the life of this dance agency for Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Dance champions the value of dance and its development in Yorkshire. We do so by raising standards, increasing knowledge and understanding and fostering creativity and innovation.

We create opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to see, make and take part in high quality dance that is rooted in their creativity, in their lives and in their communities, with the power to transform and inspire.

We create opportunities for emerging and established artists and practitioners to research, create and present new contemporary work on the small scale, and in communities, developing their skills, expertise and networks.

We create opportunities for people to experience dance by working with partners in local authorities and the arts, in health and in sport, building a region-wide infrastructure for dance development.


We are delighted to welcome adults and children with disabilities to participate in all our activities. Yorkshire Dance has good access for wheelchair users.
