Please Note:
Stopgap asks that participants not attend if you think you may have Covid. The consequences of any member of our team having covid can be very serious, to both our personal health, and on a practical level. As a touring company we come into contact with many people, so to reduce the risk of covid affecting anyone we ask participants to complete an antigen test before entering the studio to take part in class.

Antigen tests will be available on site/in reception before you come into the space with us. The updated arrival time for this class is 09:30 daily to facilitate testing.

We thank you for your understanding.

ABOUT Stopgap Dance Company

Stopgap Dance Company is driven by a diverse creative team who uses dance as a movement for change.

Our vision is to create an inclusive world where diversity is not just accepted but pursued, a world where no one is limited by prejudice against D/deaf, disabled, or neurodivergent people.

Working with an artform shaped by human touch and energised by the spark of connectivity, our work demonstrates the compelling power of diversity and inclusivity. We move together to create a remarkable experience that transforms society’s perceptions of difference and dismantle the inequity of privilege, in dance and in all aspects of living, collaborating, and creating together as humans.

Our work is both focused on and born out of the company’s rigorous investment in equity and inclusive culture. We are committed to removing barriers to dance, nurturing the talents of dancers born into any body and any mind. We are in coalition with a wave of organisations moving towards a better representation of diversity on our stages and in society.

We are a global leader of disability access in dance and continuously examine best practice. We actively advocate for the industry and the wider world to become more inclusive.
