Flex Dance Company
Organisation: TIN Arts
Region: North East
Flex Dance Company is comprised of nine artists with a learning disability who come together to create, devise and perform new contemporary dance work. Flex Dance Company aims to develop original work which embraces strong dynamics, technical achievement and a strong bond between the viewer and the dancer. All new works are a joint collaborative process between dancer, choreographer and viewer and strive to present all work with the highest production values. By devising and presenting movement of the highest standard, all performers demonstrate an honest integrity blessed with creativity and rich in expression. Over the past three years Flex have performed regularly in the North East as part of shared platforms within both the disability and non-disability arts sector.

TIN Arts is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and was founded in 1999 by professional contemporary dancers Tess Chaytor and Martin Wilson. TIN Arts is an innovative social enterprise that creates, inspires, delivers and manages participatory dance, arts and culture programmes for people of all ages and abilities across the North East of England. TIN Arts believe all people with a disability should be able to access the same activities as everyone else, no matter who they are, or where they live. Those with a disability might include people with learning difficulties, physical disability and a range of emotional and behavioural needs. TIN Arts works closely with individuals, schools, local authorities and health trusts to develop innovative programmes which place the individual at their heart. These include Bounce, an inclusive youth dance programme and arts and health programmes in hospitals and schools.
