South East Dance supports dance artists that specialise in all forms, from breakdancing to ballroom, with funding, tailored advice and networking opportunities throughout their careers. As passionate believers in the health and wellbeing benefits of dance, they also work hard to bring movement to as many people as possible too – particularly those who might not have had the opportunity or the confidence to give it a go before.
