Dance Westminster is supported by Step Change Studios, an award-winning, pioneering dance company committed to making dance accessible for everyone.

Open to disabled people aged 10 and over who live, study or work in the borough, Dance Westminster gives people the opportunity to attend a free dance workshop where they can experience an inclusive, engaging dance class and learn a dance routine.

All the participants attended the workshops and auditions led by Step Change Studios. As a result, the finalists attended on Tuesday 17th October the Dance Westminster Final.
