ANJAI DANCE COMPANY celebrates the creative abilities and artistic potential of people with learning disabilities and demonstrates exciting new possibilities in dance. Through its innovative and pioneering work Anjali engages the professional dance community in a debate about aesthetics, form, purpose and inclusion.
Anjali works with world-class dance artists and choreographers to train talented individuals and create and tour original dance work which is performed by dancers with learning disabilities. Our dancers have performed at venues throughout the UK, including the Royal Festival Hall, Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Opera House in London (with dancers from the Royal Ballet, in a performance described as “absolutely wonderful”) and at venues in Europe. Anjali’s performances have been highly praised by critics and reviewers.
We also have a successful youth dance company, Young Anjali, and an Education and Outreach team of dancers with learning disabilities who teach and lead workshops.
Anjali Dance Company enables people with learning disabilities to achieve excellence, provides positive role models and encourages the integration and inclusion of people with learning disabilities in the Arts and in society. Our innovative and pioneering work has created a radical new perspective for contemporary dance.
