EncoreEast is a performance company of older dancers. We exist to promote dance by and for older people, seeking to achieve creative, artistic and performance innovation and excellence. We create and perform in both traditional and site-specific spaces for live, screen and on-line audiences.
Aiming to make dance accessible and relevant to a wide range of people, we work to create positive perceptions of ageing. We offer work opportunities for professional artists to teach, create and exchange learning with older dancers. We promote public understanding of, and advocate for, dance through activities including workshops, creative projects, conferences, research, blogs and our website.
We are grateful to DanceEast for its continuing support and to Arts Council England for financial support towards Focus and Home from Home. Further information, images and videos of these and other works can be found in the projects section of the website.
