Powys Dance has been a part of the cultural fabric of the Powys arts scene for 35 years. Working across age ranges, social backgrounds and abilities we hope to inspire more people to enjoy participating in dance. We are a community and education-based dance company and dance development agency who believes that dance is an exciting and accessible art form that inspires creativity and joy, stimulates learning and has deep routed health benefits that extend beyond fitness into holistic wellbeing.
Our vision is more people dancing: more people making and creating, more people watching performances, more people dancing together as families, as communities, as friends and in schools.
We are passionate about the future of our vibrant dance company and work to provide a great range of classes and services that facilitate dance alongside generating more cultural experiences for the people of Powys and beyond. Further to this we act as an incubator for talent but welcome all abilities in a bid to bring the joy of dance into as many homes and communities across the county as possible.
In 2015 we transitioned into a charity, with a renewed vision and determination to get more people dancing. With this we recruited a highly-skilled Board of Trustees, who are responsible for the governance and strategic development of the charity as we move into this new era.
We are an Arts Council of Wales' Revenue Funded Organisation and also receive support from Powys County Council.
Take a look at our classes, services and projects. We have something for everyone and are always excited to hear from practitioners who want to add another string to our bow, so if you want to get involved please get in touch.
