We believe that dance is for everyone. As a registered charity (1111641) we are dedicated to transforming lives through dance. Based in our wonderful historic seafront building, just off Westover Road in Bournemouth, we have two dance studios for classes and rehearsals and a 197-seat theatre.  

In our building and in public spaces across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, Pavilion Dance offers residents and visitors myriad opportunities to dance and watch high quality, live or digital dance performances from all cultures. We work with local communities, people living with disabilities or ill health and world-class choreographers and dancers as well as support local businesses. We aim to welcome everyone by opening doors, holding hands and ensuring that people can see themselves across our work. 

We are a creative centre of excellence for professional work and talent development across the South West and wider UK. Our aim is for all people and body types to be visible throughout all our work; this is reflected in our programme of live and online shows, community work and weekly dance classes.
