Initiated by leading dance artist Danielle Teale, the Artists' Exchange Programme is the first of its kind to be inspired by and designed for artists working in choreographic, community dance practice


Danielle Teale Dance recognises the value of creative, choreographic approach to community practice that brings high quality engagement for participants, and deepens personal, artistic integrity for artists at all stages of their career. Initiated and led by experienced professional dance artist Danielle Teale, the programme responds to a need for recognition of creative, artistic and choreographic excellence in community practice. Driven by the shared value system of influential community dance artists and inspired directly by the people we dance with; the AEP demonstrates the collective voice of independent practitioners and the valuable contributions that community dance artists make to the UK dance ecology.
