After a year of challenge, cancellations and postponed events for the organisation the Dance Network Association (dna) are delighted to announce that their annual dance conference will take place on Wednesday 29 September 2021.


dna is welcoming people to view, take part and learn from their programme activity including our postnatal and early years projects, an insight into our Dancing with Parkinson’s programme, our work with older adults and so much more.


Additionally, included is a wealth of dance workshops with national speakers, artists, and performance companies providing a well-rounded experience for all participants that choose to engage with the day.

The day is open to freelance artists wanting to develop their skills, educational teachers with an interest or specialism in dance’s also wishing to upskill and network with like-minded peers.


In addition, this year we are extending our invite to local social prescribers, GP’s, NHS workers, children’s centres, and anyone who wishes to increase their knowledge and delivery skills on how dance positively benefits the communities physical and mental health and wellbeing. As well as enabling them to signpost residents and community members to our work.

To allow a safe return to in-person activity, they will ensure covid guidelines at the time and appropriate PPE is in place during the day to keep everyone well.


The conference will take place at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester and will be between the hours of 09:00 - 17:30.
