Moving ideas into action – ID is an established artist-led organisation based at Siobhan Davies Studios and supported by Arts Council England, London. ID provides a responsive framework to support, sustain and stimulate dance artists in their ongoing development as professionals. It offers a specialist and coherent year-round programme offering opportunities to learn, deepen enquiry, share practice and exchange ideas as part of an interdependent international community.

ID was established in 1990 and has the longest running daily training programme in the UK. Based at Siobhan Davies Studios, ID aims to expand its advocacy role and act as a hub to develop dialogue beyond its own borders.

The classes and workshops at the core of the programme, led by internationally renowned artists, place a particular focus on body-based movement exploration as a source for performance, improvisation and composition.
ID’s specialist programme offers opportunities to:
Learn practice that goes beyond the maintenance of physical condition and technical skill to promote mindful and efficient practice

Deepen enquiry that creates a ‘laboratory’ environment with approaches to teaching and learning which stress the sharing of practice over the imparting of skills

Exchange ideas rooted in the interrelationship of an individual artist’s journey with a creative learning environment and the exchange of artistic skills and ideas

Siobhan Davies Studios is accessible to disabled people and wheelchair users and the Independent Dance programme is open to disabled and non-disabled professional dance artists. If you have any particular access requirements please contact Independent Dance directly.
