Ludus Dance provides a wide range of opportunities including a studio programme of dance classes in Lancaster with something for everyone. In addition, we deliver bespoke creative projects in communities and schools with our professional team. We provide new experiences for developing North West based dance artists and audiences.
The Ludus Dance inclusive approach is recognised and valued in the dance industry, amongst our partners, in the education sector, and in the local and wider communities where we work.
We prioritise hard to reach people and places, placing excellence, engagement and learning at the heart of our work. We champion work with and for young people and proactively contribute to the development of a thriving dance ecology across Lancashire and the North West by providing progression routes in dance, the arts and cultural activity.
I realised what an incredibly safe space we were in where communication, full body communication, was stripped of all cultural and social expectations and my little boy was totally free to be exactly who he is.
Ludus Dance has ben invaluable to me during my time as an emerging artist. We need organisations like Ludus to continue providing dance for everyone.
‘Ludus has survived and thrived not only because it has consistently upped its game in terms of production and artistic quality, but crucially because it has made dance a part of people's lives in an enduring way.'
‘Ludus is about educating young people through Dance, not about simply introducing them to Dance. Dance is a tool; it is not the end itself.'
