Established in 2014, Alexander Whitley Dance Company exists as a platform for enquiry: bringing together artists and academics from a wide range of disciplines to explore, develop and disseminate ideas about movement. Building on a distinguished performing career, AWDC was founded in response to the new spheres of knowledge and creativity being opened up by digital technology and a widening interest in dance from thinkers in other fields including science, design and architecture.

Through its innovative stage productions The Measures Taken, Pattern Recognition and 8 Minutes, the company has rapidly established a reputation for its ambitious and intellectually engaged work and has developed a wide network of world-class collaborators.  

A desire to further knowledge and understanding of dance within the field as well as to the broader public is also a driving force behind the company’s work. Establishing research platforms through our links with higher education is a key factor in this and with our Creative Learning Programme we seek to bring our high quality work to communities and young people around the UK.  












Alexander Whitley Dance Company has a bright future ahead but the company's success depends in part on the support that we are able to secure from those who value Alexander's passion and creativity. Any level of support can make a difference to our ability to deliver exciting and thought-provoking new productions.
