Dance North (Scotland)

Established dance artists Karl Jay-Lewin and Deborah Jay-Lewin launched Dance North Scotland (originally Bodysurf Scotland) in 2003, as a not for profit company, limited by guarantee, inspired by the belief that the setting of Findhorn Bay and the locally based arts facilities would provide the perfect venue from which to promote dance, as a contemporary art form and participatory activity, to both a national and international audience.
Over the years Dance North Scotland has offered a substantial range of residential and non-residential workshops and performance events that cater for a wide spectrum of dancers from the professional practitioner to the recreational dancer. Dance North collaborates with a range of individuals, teachers, artists and organisations, internationally and locally, to produce quality events, workshops and performances that have an international reputation.
In 2012 the company became a Social Enterprise account managed by Highlands and Islands Enterprise. The company's vision is to be an international centre for dance in Scotland and to support change in our relationship to the planet and society "one dance step at a time". This vision has developed out of our many years of experience and the extensive international network of professional artists and passionate people we work with.
With Social Enterprise status we aim to take this vision forward expanding our work with people of all ages and all abilities across a wider geographical area; to support a sense of creativity, cooperation and community, through art, culture and sustainability awareness.
