Studies into the impact of dance on health and wellbeing have found that it contributes to our sense of identity, belonging and self-worth. Which is a why every body is welcome at Brighton & Hove’s home for dance, The Dance Space. Arts charity South East Dance opened the doors to their accessible new building in the Circus Street development a year ago and, since then, have seen thousands of people come through their sliding doors to enjoy dance in one way or another. As well as hosting a regular programme of dance classes for all ages and abilities, The Dance Space provides much-needed space for artists to develop and rehearse work. South East Dance also works closely with community organisations in the local area, including care homes and nurseries, and offers regular free classes in the studios to those groups.
This summer sees the return of South East Dance’s annual free festival Our City Dances, created in collaboration with their local steering group. A day of family-friendly fun on Saturday 1 July, head down to The Dance Space for workshops, live performances, films, taster classes, food and drink. Community partners will also be running stalls, many responding to this year’s theme of celebrating nature and looking at how we care for each other and the planet.
