Different bodies and minds.
Dancing together.

ID Dance Co. is a dance company based in Leicester, UK. We explore how different bodies and minds can dance together. 

We create high-quality work that challenges expectations of who a dancer is, by bringing together talented dancers with different bodies and minds from a range of backgrounds and cultures.

What We Do

ID Sessions

Each year weekly inclusive dance technique classes take place at Attenborough Arts Centre, for all members of ID Dance Co. Auditions take place annually.

As part of the ID Session, ID Dance Co. members can attend 3 masterclasses with industry leaders each year.

‘We Meet Again’ Film

Two dancers from ID Dance Co., Lauren Russell and Kadafi Mulula used ideas from a masterclass to create this dance film. They worked with choreographer and director Charlotte Tomlinson and producer Laura Evans to develop the ideas and movement. The film was then shot on location with BAFTA award winning film company Junction 15.

This short film shares the workshop tasks that they delivered and gives an insight in to how to lead an inclusive dance workshop that adapts to, includes and supports different bodies and minds to move and create.

Developing Talent

ID Dance Co. is part of the We Are Epic Talent Development Programme and explores methods for developing a high-quality dance company that works with a range of different bodies and minds to create and present new work together.

We support and develop talented disabled, non-disabled, neurodiverse and ethnically diverse artists to access quality dance training and masterclasses with industry leaders.

Through this talent development programme we also offer bespoke mentoring, international opportunities and support for dancers at the start of their careers.

A Unique Approach to Talent Development

We’re always on the look out for professional choreographers to work with to develop our Dancers professional pathways and for choreographers to develop their own inclusive practice.
