DanceXchange is a power house of dance with excellence, innovation, participation and inclusion at its heart – and, together with Birmingham Hippodrome and Birmingham Royal Ballet, is part of the largest dance partnership in Britain.
Housed within the Birmingham Hippodrome complex, DanceXchange has some of the best dance facilities in the UK, with three studios and The Patrick Centre, a 206-seat studio theatre which was the first dedicated dance space outside London and remains one of the most important spaces for dance performance and production in the country.
DanceXchange takes the best British dance to a worldwide stage and brings outstanding artists from across the world to Birmingham.
We nurture the best young dance talent, and work with communities, hard-to-reach groups and schools. We train and inspire the region’s dance talent through education and professional development, to help shape the dance artists, performers and leaders of the future.
DanceXchange produces innovative site-specific commissions and large-scale performance events in both professional and community contexts, co-produces a range of touring productions, and runs its own small-scale touring dance company, Bare Bones. We produce exciting new dance works and bring them to new audiences, through International Dance Festival Birmingham, and through our Production and Touring Hub.
At DanceXchange our aim is to bring dance to more people in Birmingham and the West Midlands region, through performances, productions, classes and community outreach.
As we look to our long term future, we want to continue this work and we want to keep dance alive in the region. As a registered charity, we receive core funding from Arts Council England and Birmingham City Council, along with a range of trusts and foundations.
But we also need support from individuals and businesses to make this happen.
By supporting DanceXchange, you will help us fulfil our core objectives: to produce exceptional work; to bring outstanding performances to Birmingham; and to enable people of all walks of life to engage in dance either as a participant, performer or audience member. It’s easy to show us your support!
