Expressions is a celebration of inclusive dance, showcasing the work of community and professional inclusive dance groups from across the Yorkshire region and beyond. As the only event of its kind in Leeds, Expressions gives talented disabled dancers the chance to perform on a professional stage. Expressions is part of the BEYOND Festival, celebrating the work of artists with learning disabilities in Leeds.

Expressions 2018 will take place on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 July and this year we are delighted to welcome Casson & Friends, a record-breaking dance theatre company who create engaging performances with a focus on collaboration, interaction and joy. They will be performing Night at the Theatre, a fun, family adventure which celebrates the creativity in all of us.

Alongside Casson & Friends, we will be showcasing exciting work from companies based across the UK and beyond, including Opening Doors from Malta, TIN Arts from Durham and Northern Ballet’s very own Ability and in motion. All performances have a relaxed structure and are designed to be fully accessible for both performers and audiences alike.
