enCompass Collective was founded in 2013 between two graduates in Dance & Theatre Studies from the University of Chester. Since then, the collective have developed into a professional dance theatre company that performs nationally and internationally.
The collective’s primary aims are:
- To create and perform engaging and innovative dance theatre works.
- To provide regular classes and workshops to students from Secondary through to Higher Education level.
- To cultivate the ecology of dance in the North West by providing classes, shadowing and performance opportunities for graduates and professionals in the area.
Directed by Josh Slater and Eleanor Russell,the company have been creating and touring live work and dance films across different venues and festivals in the U.K and Italy.
We provide bespoke educational workshops to all ages and abilities, weekly contemporary and fitness classes, as well as CPD for Dance teachers.
