One Dance UK  growing international profile has developed in a number of ways – through the Trailblazer fellows travelling widely to undertake training opportunities; the web and social media presence of DAD practitioners; the Re:generations International Conference; and partnerships hosting international artists through the Horniman Museum and Gardens, Dance Consortium, Dance Umbrella, Africa Utopia at the Southbank Centre and the AfroVibes Festival.

The DAD programming will build on ADAD’s partnerships with a number of contacts across Europe, Canada, the USA and in several African countries e.g. Dance Immersion in Toronto, Canada, the International Association of Blacks in Dance in the USA, Tabanka Dance Ensemble in Oslo, Norway, L’Ecole des Sables in Senegal and Tabo Flo in Uganda. Recently three UK-based artists collaborated with Canadian artist, Ghislaine Doté during the second phase of the International Choreographic Exchange supported by The British Council and the Government of Quebec.

We actively work to broker relationships between our global network and UK-based artists and venues with existing performance programmes, to open further opportunities to showcase their work and increase awareness the diverse diasporic art forms.
