We are the dance development organisation working in Essex and its neighbouring counties.


Updates from 8 June 2020 

Dear all! WE ARE BACK IN ACTION in some sense of the word. 

Lyann and myself are still part time furloughed so please bear with us as operating hours are a little mixed and we have to prioritize fundraising but we do have some great online live and recorded class content starting late July 2020. 

We are concentrating at the current time getting our older movers, Parkinson's and youth dancers back up and running and then we will keep you informed about new content and of course our FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS. 

We have had to make the decision due to COVID and low staffing to cancel our conference this year in September but we will be putting our efforts into bringing you something special for our celebration in November, so please look out for more news. 

Until we meet virtually

Updates from 8 May 2020

Dear reader, unfortunately, COVID- 19 has had an impact on how The Dance Network Association (DNA) are able to operate, administratively.

We have to make the decision to furlough members of staff for periods of time in order to support our core funds and in that we can continue our great work! Which means our operating hours may differ each week as employees and casual workers are in and out of the virtual office each week.

Please use E: info@dancenetworkassociation.org.uk and T: 07490 37 47 17 as a means to communicate with us at this time and we will update our website when we are able to share with you a ‘back too normal’ state of business hours.

We have temporarily had to suspend our face to face activity and also cancel our Let’s Go, TOKYO summer events. We understand that this is disheartening to all involved and to ourselves as an organisation; but in all our work and we are finding ways to stay connected with you via virtual/online platforms, as well as sending out creative classes and tasks via the post and on DVD for those who do not have online access.

So please do stay tuned for our online season. Through the Virtual Dancing Tab.

If you are a participant of the Dance Network Association and you have not received a personal letter from us asking how we are able to best communicate with you during this time, it may mean we do not have your address details on file. Please give us a call on 07490 37 47 17 or email info@dancenetworkassociation.org.uk and we can collect this information to ensure you are not forgotten.

Hello and welcome if you are a new member! I would expect you have joined us due to our online continuation and therefore have access to technology, please sign up to our mailing list for up to date information from us.  

You can find our subscribe button at the footer of each of our website pages.

We are now struggling as an organisation financially but are fighting to continue to stay connected with our dancers during this time, If you are able to financially support our work please click here to Support Our DNA - with forever thanks. 

Until we meet in person we hope to see you dancing in the virtual space
