About Us

Dance Up makes great dance happen in unusual places.

Our mission is to initiate high quality opportunities for participants, audiences and artists to enjoy and excel in dance.
At the heart of Dance Up is the belief that dance can offer people of all ages & abilities powerful, transformational and life-enhancing experiences.

Our strategic aims are:
1.    To improve awareness and enjoyment of dance as an artform, particularly in audiences with little access to live dance performance.

2.    To increase participation in dance, particularly by those who would benefit from increased physical activity in targeted communities in southern England

3.    To work in Hampshire and surrounding areas to strengthen progression routes both for young people seeking careers in dance and within the sector for dance leaders and makers

Dance Up is the working name of The Hampshire Dance Trust, registered as a charity No. 1087078 and as a company No. 2931193.
