DanceXchange is a Birmingham-based dance organisation 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.

OUR AIMS

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.

OUR VALUES

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.  Please consider supporting us, see below.

DANCEXCHANGE AND DANCE4 ARE MERGING

From mid-April 2022, DanceXchange and Dance4 will be coming together in a formal merger, building on the strengths of our two successful organisations. We are combining our complementary knowledge, skills and expertise to form a new, single, strategic organisation, FABRIC.

FABRIC will strive to inspire, increase and diversify engagement, co-create with the extraordinary people of the region, encourage creative leadership, develop talent, and celebrate the impact of dance and its place in public life. Jointly, we believe we can be more ambitious for dance made, produced and nurtured in the Midlands.

The work, people and resources of both DanceXchange and Dance4 will continue into the forming of FABRIC, and we will continue to operate and grow from our existing sites in Nottingham and Birmingham.

We look forward to this next exciting chapter, working with and for artists, audiences and communities, to create new opportunities and growth for dance in the Midlands and beyond.
