Our Practice

EncoreEast became an independent dance company in 2020. Organically we are developing a model of distributed leadership.

We are committed to offering employment opportunities to dance artists. We have worked on Zoom with Mary Davies, Caroline Mummery, Stuart Waters (Protein), Fiona Millward, Maria Ghoumrassi and Arielle Smith. We have been part of dance films with Protein Dance and New Adventures and taken part in site-specific dance research workshops. Our first in-depth live creative project led by Russell Maliphant Dance Company culminated in a performance ‘Focus’ at DanceEast. Alongside our company practice, we independently attend workshops to explore diverse approaches and genres. Our individual learning feeds into the shared experience of the company. 

By celebrating the unique qualities of each member of the group, we support each other to be defiantly individual and joyously part of a shared collective experience.  Our core desire is to learn with curiosity and see where it takes us. Reaching out to others and beyond ourselves, we are excited to dance, play, research and perform.
