Description:

The Dance Network Association is passionate about offering a wealth of dance participation and education to local communities in Essex and its neighbouring counties.

Our mission is to raise the profile of dance in Essex and further afield. We seek to do this through the provision of affordable high quality dance delivery for local communities, individuals, schools and young people more generally.

We seek to:
- increase the opportunities available for everyone in the community to engage in dance
- encourage happy and healthy lifestyles through dance activity by promoting self-esteem, confidence, mobility and general fitness
- widen aspirations by providing both performance opportunities and the opportunity to be part of a community audience
- enhance the quality of dance provision across the county by offering support in schools and through
professional development programmes and qualifications
- build a coherent and progressive dance future for Essex and its neighbouring counties
- (above all) have fun dancing!
