Company of Others Ensemble

Company of Others Ensemble is a performing company of dancers who happen to be over the age of 65.

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.

In addition to creating new work and performing across the region, Ensemble enjoy group trips to the theatre to see dance, observe professional classes and lead workshops for other groups such as Alnwick Garden’s Elderberries.

Our core values are Creativity, Belonging and Respect.

“Since dancing with Company of Others Ensemble I feel happier, more purposeful, definitely healthier and fitter”
