Ludus Dance has been developing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to take part in, create, and watch dance since 1975.

From an exciting and fun studio programme offering a wide range of dance classes in Lancaster to support for professional dance artists, we have a reputation for excellence and a renowned ethos that ‘dance is for everyone’.

Our charity takes the lead to inspire and generate high quality dance projects in Lancaster, Lancashire and across the North West of England, working together with community groups, schools, colleges and universities, local authorities and other arts partners.

We champion dance for young people and offer the experience that is essential for inspiring the next generation of dance artists.
