The vision of Dance United Yorkshire is to produce high quality contemporary dance performances across Yorkshire that engage members of the public who would not traditionally encounter this art form, as well as attracting knowledgeable dance audiences. This will be achieved by commissioning emerging and established choreographers to create high quality artistic work and giving regional dance artists the skills and opportunities to work with young people who are non-dancers and living in challenging life circumstances. Thus we will use the power of dance to have a lasting, positive impact on the lives of young people.
Having gathered a sound body of evidence in support of the transformative power of what we do, we strive for our intensive dance-based interventions to have a recognised place within mainstream programmes of education, social inclusion, mental health and criminal justice.
