Company of Others Ensemble

Company of Others Ensemble is a performing company of dancers who happen to be over the age of 60.

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.

Their core values are Creativity, Belonging and Respect.

NEW WORK 2020: Company of Others Ensemble X West Walker Primary
For 10 months Company of Others Ensemble have been collaborating with Year 6 West Walker Primary students to create a new performance which will premiere 31st March 2020 at Byker Community Centre, thanks to support from Newcastle City Council and Community Foundation Tyne & Wear.
Sadly, due to Covid-19, this performance is no longer able to take place. We’re so grateful to all of the dancers who created something amazing, and to all of our project partners who supported them.
