Dance Art Foundation
extends the boundaries of dance asserting its vital contribution to international culture, health and public life.

Dance Art Foundation incubate new ideas in dance that it takes out into the world in fresh and imaginative ways. Performances are bold and progressive, often transgressing art form boundaries and in dialogue with other disciplines. Its Critical Dialogues projects drives dance forward, fostering fertile debate that challenges artists and widens public access to new thinking in dance. In social engagement, Dance Art Foundation is an international leader in dance-in-health.

Dance Art Ltd, our sister creative collective taking our artists' work into fashion, music, events and film, was launched in 2015.
