Candoco Dance Company is the contemporary dance company of disabled and non-disabled dancers.

At the heart of our work are our national and international productions, created by world class choreographers for audiences to enjoy. Alongside these, through our Learning projects and activities we provide access to the highest quality of work for people participating in contemporary dance for pure enjoyment, or as part of a developing career.

We are a passionate, dedicated team of people and we want to show you what dance can be, and who can dance.

Our vision

To continually expand perceptions of what dance can be

Our mission

Candoco is a world-leading professional dance company. Bridging the mainstream and the experimental, our bold approach and powerful collaborations create distinctive performances and far-reaching learning experiences. We celebrate different ways of seeing, of being and of making art, putting us at the forefront of conversation around dance and disability.

These ambitions are driven by an understanding that diversity is inherently exciting and most likely to lead to the next great idea. We want to continue pushing our own and others’ ambitions for what disabled dancers can do and involve as many talented artists as we can on this journey. This commitment puts learning at the heart of everything we do – as we must ensure there is room for different bodies, perspectives and experiences within dance.

All our work, from performances by our professional and youth companies, to our workshops, regular classes, intensives and training modules, seeks to make a long term change in the vibrancy of dance and the range of dancers you see on stage.
