Who we are


Confidance are an inclusive dance organisation creating high quality dance opportunities for and with learning disabled people. Based in East Kent, Confidance have been working for over 15 years in schools, community and professional dance settings.


Confidance’s education work focuses primarily on deep engagement with partner schools. Through long-term engagement, the team can share practice with a wide range of staff and students, allowing for mutually beneficial relationships to develop.


Confidance began working with Whitfield Aspen School began with the ‘Listen Up!’ project in 2015 which saw students from six schools in the Samphire Learning Hub, including students with PMLD, working together towards a performance at The Gulbenkian. The project also aimed to develop the non-learning disabled students’ ability to communicate through Touch Cue and Makaton, with the ambition that they go on to become inclusivity ambassadors in their own schools.


Confidance began a new residency with Whitfield Aspen in 2020 and are now in their fourth year of partnership. Over the four years, Confidance have worked with over 650 students from across both school sites. Projects have included: a two-year person-centred residency with Bluebirds class; whole year engagement with Year 3s and 5s, responding to curriculum learning; performances from ConfiCo, our professional company of LD dancers; a flash mob dance event, engaging over 350 students in the Folkestone Triennial.
