Gender Equality

We align ourselves with the United Nations Sustainable goal number 5 on Gender Equality: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Women’s and girls equal participation in decision making is crucial to achieve gender parity in the wider society and dance sector. Our programmes and research aim to offer the training and opportunities for all women and girls to be agents of change and contribute to make the world a better place. Our programmes contribute to the United Nations 17 sustainable goals


If it’s not intersectional is not feminism. We recognised that systems of oppression impact people differently based on their race, class, ability, sexuality, and other characteristics. While “mainstream feminism” may focus only (or primarily) on gender or sex, intersectional feminism understands that oppression is an interlocking system.

Our Values

Our D.A.N.C.E. values; Dream big, Act now, Navigate the world, Create your artistic and Leadership voice, and Empower yourself and others, are what guide our activities and programmes. They are at the core of everything we do to guide our decisions as well as develop new ideas and partnerships.
