Rounded Rhythm’s mission is to create opportunities to dance for as wide a range of people as possible, building respect and embracing and celebrating diversity. We promote creativity, wellbeing, confidence and inclusion. We actively seek to engage with people who may not easily be able to access dance activities, due to disability or social circumstance.

We offer ongoing weekly classes as well as one-off bespoke workshops, projects and performances. Our dance groups and companies share their work in a range of platforms, from informal sharings and celebrations to public performances and festivals such as Dance Active and Take Part (run by Brighton & Hove City Council Active for Life), and the Brighton Festival.

We believe that every dancer has unique creativity and talent. We use our expertise in inclusive dance practice to create an environment where every individual is encouraged, challenged and celebrated, and can exceed the expectations that they themselves or others may have of them.

Our creative approach draws on a wide number of dance and performance styles. We are interested in projects and collaborations which explore new ways of working and are prepared to take creative risks. We invite in professional artists from other companies and disciplines to run masterclasses for the members of our regular dance groups. Past masterclasses have included artist-teachers from Streetfunk, Centre for Advance Training (CAT scheme run by South East Dance & The Place), Tilted Productions and the Dad Dancing project.

Rounded Rhythm’s work is supported by Arts Council England, South East Dance, the Arbonne Charitable Foundation and Brighton and Hove City Council to name a few. We are also grateful to the many individual donors who have supported our projects.

“I would like to thank you and all the other dancers for giving my daughter such an amazing opportunity. You are all wonderful and so patient with them all. What lucky kids.” (Feedback from parent after Dance Inc performance at Dance Active 2016)
