Movement 12 is a group of independent dance artists based in and around Brighton who curate an international programme of artist – led professional development opportunities for dance artists in a variety of spaces in the town.
The programme includes: Regular movement classes, workshops and summer schools with internationally respected performance makers and teachers; Space to try out ideas and show work in progress; And opportunities to meet, discuss and explore.
The programme creates a variety of contexts for dance artists and their collaborators to come together with others working in their fields to support, challenge and expand the work they do.

Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company is recognised as Northern Ireland’s leading Dance Company. It was created by Ursula Laeubli and Steve Batts in Amsterdam in 1991 and after six years of project work in Europe it relocated to Derry, Northern Ireland where it has since become a key influence in the development of dance theatre in Ireland.
Echo Echo regularly produces and tours internationally with original new performance work for an ensemble of local and international dancers. The company also has a strong commitment to developing dance as an accessible art form maintaining a busy dance education and outreach programme for people of all ages and abilities.
It is the company’s movement style and ethos that sets it apart from the crowd with influences ranging from the quirky and playful to gentle and poetic, sourcing its movement material from a very wide range of contemporary dance forms and movement practices.
Echo Echo’s team of staff, artists and volunteers has flourished in recent years, generating a diverse and exciting programme of education and performance work.
