Established in 2014, Alexander Whitley Dance Company exists as a platform for enquiry and innovation, bringing together world-class artists, academic research and technological ingenuity in the creation of ground-breaking dance productions.

Building on a distinguished performing career, AWDC was founded in response to the new creative possibilities emerging from developments in digital technology and the interdisciplinary practices forming around it.

Through its innovative stage productions, installations and virtual reality experiences, the company has rapidly established a reputation for its ambitious and intellectually engaged work and has drawn together a network of exceptional collaborators.  

Using digital technology to deepen appreciation of, and widen access to, dance is a driving force behind the company’s work and through our Creative Learning Programme we seek to enable and inspire communities and young people around the UK.
