Moving to make art that matters, our mission is to inspire, engage and empower people through dance.

Excellence, quality, inclusion and learning are at the heart of our work. We actively champion work with and for young people and contribute to the development of a thriving dance ecology across Lancashire and the North West. We do this by providing progression routes and bespoke training in dance, the arts and cultural activity.


The Ludus Mission - Ludus Dance

2017 - 2018 Impact Review

Ludus Dance is a place where people, community and art really matter. That's why, since I became involved in 2011 when it became a charity and had just lost significant funding for the touring company, I've been proud to be part of an organisation that has fought through difficult times.

We have gathered strength both financially and artistically and our impact in 17/18 is a clear demonstration of this.

We are focussed and determined to grow with the support from our funders, partners, studio and programme participants, and an enthusiastic team of artists, volunteers and staff. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to our journey so far and I look forward to seeing more exciting and innovative work.

- John Wareing, Chair of the Board of Directors
