Dance Cumbria was a major countywide dance development project. It focused on participatory activity, primarily for children and young people, through regular weekly classes, an annual U.DanceCumbriafestival, boys-only projects, CanDance (an award-winning programme for young people with a learning disability), Cumbria Youth Dance Company, performances opportunities and professional development for local practitioners & teachers.
Dance Cumbria reached over 58,000 people and created life-changing opportunities for many children, young people and adults.
Dance Cumbria’s legacy is a much stronger infrastructure of high quality dance practitioners and sustainable community-based participatory opportunities.
