Create quality experiences
Silverbirch Dance Company is committed to providing audience, performers and professional team with the highest quality experiences.The skill of our leaders is in identifying the movement specialism of any body and to make it work with others. Working inclusively sets new challenges in the delivery of performance training but does not jeopardise the excellence of our outcomes.
Silverbirch Dance Company make no compromise by working inclusively, our work does not exist to segregate people of different performance abilities from one another. We work with professional performers to ensure that there is excellence in our work and that we always provide the highest quality outcomes.
A commitment to total inclusion
We believe that everybody is capable of attaining skills, and has the right to express their creativity. For every dancer, their journey starts with the understanding that this is achievable. Our team are a group of qualified professional performers who demonstrate a spectrum of physical and learning abilities. Their skills, combined with the the ActOne vision, turns what may have previously been seen as a person’s disability or limitation into their unique area of performance specialism.
We find ways to create the space that each person needs to develop as an artist. Silverbirch Dance Company strives to create a community where people of all ages and abilities perform together and accept difference. We recognises that we are all different, and that through performance we come together to share a common ground which does not allow for segregation.
Invite, inspire and involve
We place great importance on developing audiences and finding new ways of taking the aesthetic of our work out into our local and national communities. We are constantly looking for ways to include audiences more widely in our work. It is important to us that our audiences are able to take something personal from experiencing our work as an audience member or participant.
The Silverbirch Dance Company Family
ActOne’s ethos towards inclusion places respect, equality and belonging at the heart of both our practice and our relationships with people. Our performance aesthetic demands trust in and of all of our performers and teachers, it is through this development of trust that we can physically support each other to go further in our performance practice. We recognise that in order to develop and nurture an environment in which this ethos can be upheld and shared we must interact with our performers, trainees and members as though they were our creative family.
