Mission Statement

‘The Dance Team  is committed to promoting and investing in high quality dance activity in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. Our mission is to energise and initiate projects ranging from community dance to professional work with a particular focus in collaboration, diversity and quality.’

We will support and encourage  dance activity that shows professionalism, integrity, creativity and skill, and where a need or a market can be demonstrated.

We will assemble, regularly update and disseminate the information available on all strands of the Milton Keynes dance community.

We will keep in touch with the dance community and with them identify what`s missing and what would meet an unmet need.

We will develop and implement proposals that can fulfil identified needs in dance, including support for those seeking to make a living from dance.

We will work in alliance with others, treat colleagues with respect and co-operation, and promote programmes that add value, are fun and celebrate the best of our dance.
