The dancers have developed a strong passion for dance and creating choreography that speaks of their experiences. We aim to inspire other older people, celebrate age, challenge preconceptions of age, and provide a unique dance experience for audiences which is sensitive, moving and outstanding in quality.

Our core values are Creativity, Belonging and Respect.

Company of Others Ensemble invite you to dance!

Company of Others are a performing company who happen to be over the age of 65. They are creating a new piece of dance theatre at West Denton Community Centre, inspired by their own experiences and those of their community.
If you are 65 of over join us for a creative afternoon led by Choreographer Nadia Iftkhar, of dancing, making new friends and sharing stories. Dancing is a wonderful way to stay fit, socialise, learn new skills, boost your mood, prevent falls and increase confidence.
