About our Engagement activities

Dance In A Day

The Engagement team is Dance City are here to get people moving and make dance accessible to more people in the North East.

This takes place inside our Newcastle and Sunderland buildings as well as in schools and local communities. We create opportunities to experience and enjoy dance regardless of background and circumstances.

We work with schools and community groups to create, and deliver unique projects, workshops, events and festivals.


Your young people are at the heart of what we do here at Dance City and dance is a fun and highly effective way of getting young people physically active, developing confidence and self-esteem, promoting creativity and self-expression, developing social skills, promoting learning about different cultures and encouraging students to work together regardless of ability.

Dance City strives to develop dance with and for anyone and everyone, encouraging people from ‘Mini Movers’ to ‘Mature Movers’ (and everything in between) to become enthused about creative work and the range of transferable skills which can be achieved through dance.  Our dance workshops can be catered to any age group and ability; we have experienced teachers who can lead a variety of dance styles.

Our team works closely within the community to ensure that everyone can be part of the Dance City experience, whether it be inside or outside our building.  A big part of bringing these experiences together happens through showcasing dance and collaborative projects that have been developed throughout the year.  We pride ourselves on presenting an accessible and inclusive programme of performance opportunities with performance age ranging from 7-100+!

Every year we welcome our communities to Dance City to be part of an annual performance, celebrating people and their experience through dance.
