History

Anjali Dance Company has created a radical new perspective for contemporary dance. Over the past nearly 30 years, the achievements of Anjali’s dancers have won them acceptance as performing artists in their own right. Their work has helped to change perceptions of the creative and artistic potential of people with learning disabilities.

Anjali’s dancers have worked with some of the UK’s best choreographers including Lea Anderson, Gary Clarke, Claire Russ, Matthew Hawkins, Charlotte Vincent and New Art Club. They have created ground-breaking dance programmes which have been performed throughout the UK and abroad, from the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Opera House and Sadler’s Wells in London to venues in Berlin, Lisbon and Mexico City.

Anjali’s dancers have gained in personal growth, confidence and artistic skill. They have been central figures in advocating aesthetic diversity and equal opportunities for people with learning disabilities. They frequently speak at conferences and seminars and they have appeared on television.
