Inner Ground Dance Company

"Inner Ground Dance Company creates space and visibility for mature dancers. They celebrate and champion bodies with lived experience, bodies with drive and desire, bodies with sensuality and sensitivity. They do all this through exciting and engaging dance projects for the older dancer. It’s brilliant and it’s vital work."

“What an experience for a non-dancer in her 60th year. I have been taught how to dance, I am able to take stage direction and I have developed techniques that have challenged me…for me [it] has opened a whole new aspect to my life.”
