Who we are
DanceXchange is an internationally known charity dedicated to making and showing great dance. We set out to involve artists and the wider community in our work. And we’re proud to be an important part of making Birmingham a place where dance artists can live, work and thrive.
As an art form, dance can transform the way we see the world. That’s why we aim to make dance as widely accessible as possible. We want everybody to enjoy the positive transformations dance creates. The artists, dancers, and young people we work alongside. The communities we live in and reach out to. The audiences we delight.
Wherever and whenever we can, we use dance to inspire and excite.
DanceXchange never compromises on artistic quality in anything we do. We aim to make every aspect of our shows, support and facilities the best they can possibly be. Our work is artistically ambitious, entertaining, and engaging.
Always innovative, DanceXchange produces and promotes the best of UK and international dance. We work in partnership or collaboratively with artists, dance companies and other talented individuals to create new work and involve more people. At a regional level, we are determined to help artists to thrive and progress across the West Midlands.

How we’re funded
As a charity, we are grateful to the Arts Council England and to Birmingham City Council for their continued funding. At the same time, we know we must be flexible and forward-looking in our approach to generating revenue. That’s why we’re keen to explore partnerships with trusts, sponsors and individuals.
