Ludus Dance has impacted the lives and careers of countless dance industry professionals since the mid 70s.

We continue to support dance industry professionals through platforms such as BASE, Dance Consortia NW our Graduate & Freelance Opportunities as well as our free Pro Class Programme and new Occupied Programme.

Ludus Dance gives dancers, choreographers and dance makers the opportunity to present new and innovative work in a professional setting, with feedback from industry professionals.


The Ludus Mission - Ludus Dance

Trigger: Business Essentials

In 2019, we are running a series of free targeted business development surgeries for North West based emerging and established performance artists funded through the Garrick Charitable Trust. Bringing  specialists together with the creative industries, the programme aims to equip emerging artists with the appropriate skills to enter the workplace as  professionals, filling the skills gaps that currently exist.

Next Surgery: Bid-Writing: Basics & Beyond by Sarah Shead hosted at UCLan Dance on Wednesday 29th May. For more information click here

Pro Class

The Ludus Dance Pro Class is a free class suitable for new graduates and industry professionals.

Peer led, our professional class takes place at the Ludus studio every two weeks on a Thursday during term time (10:00am - 12:30pm). It is suitable for new graduates and industry professionals. We are always looking for new artists to deliver, so get in touch if you fancy trying out a new set of sequences or activities.


Occupied is an individually tailored careers support and professional development scheme led by Ludus Dance for artists based in the North West.

We are now accepting proposals for our 19/20 cohort. Find out more here.
