Established in 2009 as a limited company, DanceSyndrome became a charity in 2013. The charity has experienced an exponential increase in demand both regionally and nationally, and has been added to Arts Council England’s 2023-26 National Portfolio. Using dance as a vehicle for positive change, our vision is to empower learning-disabled individuals through inclusive dance.
All activity is led by a Dance Leader with learning disabilities supported by a professionally trained Dance Artist. Using a co-production model, DanceSyndrome delivers five weekly community workshops and training for the core company. On demand the dancers regularly engage in performances, training, university seminars, conferences and are developing and piloting a social franchise model.

The DanceSyndrome family is filled with passionate and motivated people. We particularly welcome applicants from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic communities, People with Disabilities and Older People to apply for these roles. You do not need specific experience of dancing or working previously with people with learning disabilities, we are looking for people who believe in what we do and want to support DanceSyndrome to grow its impact and to help create a fairer, more inclusive and equitable society for everyone.
