SHIFT Dance is a collaboration between Northern Ballet, Psico Ballet Maite Leon Foundation (Spain) and Misiconi Dance Company (Netherlands).

Funded by Erasmus+, the project's aims are:

  • Develop new teaching practice for dancers with additional learning support needs, underpinned by safe practice
  • Enable people to fulfil their potential
  • Share good practice; initially between the project collaborators and subsequently to an international audience of dance artists and teachers in community, education and professional settings
  • Raise the profile and skills of dancers with additional learning support needs across Europe
  • Underpinned by academic research; dance science input and support provided by the University of Edinburgh and the University of Leeds will evaluate the impact of the project
