Take part

Dancefest exists to enable anyone to experience the joy of dance. In our eyes everyone is a dancer, regardless of age, ability or experience.

Our work is about joining in – we run over 30 weekly classes across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, have three youth companies, lead projects in schools, colleges and universities as well as in community settings.

Get in touch if you'd like us to post you our autumn 2016 brochure, or join our mailing list for regular updates.

Get involved

Case studies - who takes part in Dancefest's classes and projects?

Helen Stallard, the Chair of Dancefest’s board and a Communications Consultant, has been talking to people who come (or used to come) to our classes, to celebrate their achievements and also help other people see how they can get involved with Dancefest. You can read their stories here.
