Stopgap Dance Company  

Stopgap Dance Company is driven by a diverse creative team who uses dance as a movement for change.

Their mission is to create an inclusive world where diversity is not just accepted but pursued, a world where no one is limited by prejudice against Deaf, Disabled, or neurodivergent people.

Working with an artform shaped by human touch and energised by the spark of connectivity, Stopgap Dance Company work demonstrates the compelling power of diversity and inclusivity. They move together to create a remarkable experience that transforms society’s perceptions of difference and dismantle the inequity of privilege, in dance and in all aspects of living, collaborating, and creating together as humans.

Stopgap Dance Company’s work is both focused on and born out of the company’s rigorous investment in equity and inclusive culture. They are committed to removing barriers to dance, nurturing the talents of dancers born into any body and any mind.
