Increasing the critical debate around dance practices of the African Diaspora

DAD Resources


One Dance UK produces learning resources, addressing the gap in provision of documentation of dance of the African Diaspora in the UK. We aim to ensure that the hidden history of Black dance artists in the UK is uncovered and that the stories and work of current artists are documented and conserved.

The range of dance forms covered includes traditional and contemporary Caribbean and African, and strong African influenced forms from the Americas such as capoeira, samba, jazz, tap, street and hip hop. Accessible documentation cover issues ranging from artistic to practical, political, theoretical and historical. Artists, practitioners, researchers and enthusiasts are encouraged to make their voices heard by contributing to our platforms and widening the conversations around dance of the African Diaspora.
