As Lancashire’s leading dance development charity, operating across the North West, Ludus Dance’s mission is to inspire and engage people through dance. The charity provides a wide range of opportunities through dance, working with children and young people and especially those who are hard to reach and in areas of socio-economic deprivation.

Our team of experienced dance and arts professionals deliver bespoke creative projects in communities and schools, provide new experiences for developing regional dance artists and audiences, and provide a wide range of opportunities to take part in, create and watch dance.

We offer something for everyone in our varied studio programme in Lancaster. Learning is fun in our high quality dance sessions, which are tailored for the individuals of all ages and abilities who are taking part.

Established in 1975, we place excellence, engagement and learning at the heart of our work. We work in partnership with community groups, schools, colleges, universities, local authorities and other arts partners and proactively contribute to the development of a thriving dance ecology. The Ludus Dance inclusive approach is recognised and valued in the dance industry, amongst our partners, in the education sector, and in the local and wider communities where we work.
