ADAD is a national organisation that supports the practice and appreciation of dance of the African Diaspora.

We want dance of the African Diaspora to be visible and valued as part of the British cultural experience.

ADAD has a unique role, working on behalf of talented dance artists who are part of the African Diaspora, to support their
development and raise the profile of their work.

Please join us for the livestream of the launch of a new industry body for dance.

Monday 7 December at 7.30pm

Association of Dance of the African Diaspora, Dance UK, National Dance Teachers Association and Youth Dance England are merging to form a new organisation that will champion excellence in education, youth dance, dance of the African diaspora, performance, health and wellbeing, management, leadership and career development.

Together we will be a stronger advocate for dance in the UK.

Please join us!
