Ella Mesma Company

Using the universal language of dance, Ela Mesma Company  champions an environment which is inclusive, collaborative and empowering.

We have taught and choreographed in academic institutions, schools and for the community, as well as within our performance framework.

We have taught in nurseries, schools, universities, congresses, youth groups, care homes and in both community and professional dancers and settings.

We can offer a range of classes and workshops, as well as wraparound activities with each production.

Our interest in dance for transformation and giving voices to the unheard extends to our engagement and community work. 

We can cater for all ages from 4 to 100!

With each show we have also developed a workshop and education package which can be booked in schools and dance venues.
