a place for
Dandelion Collective is an inclusive platform, aiming to empower the individual and encourage an inclusive society through the means of dance. It consists of adults with and without a learning difficulty and/ or disability, professionals and non-professionals. Dandelion was established in March 2013, and the group meets weekly to rehearse and develop performance pieces. Dandelion Collective is passionate about making their activities accessible to all, thus thriving on diversity, individuality and collectiveness.
It is our mission to empower the individual through creating an inclusive environment, transcending difference and uniting based on our shared humanity. Our activities promote self-expression, body awareness, fun, physical well-being and self-confidence. We bring together groups of society who would not normally meet, and encourage each individual to express their true potential.
