Get Involved


TAN has been making dance accessible to all, across the counties of Swansea and Neath Port Talbot for 30 years. In 2011/12 we completed 2,900 activities and performances with more than 20,000 participations to an audience of over 40,000 people. During these challenging times it is even more important that we continue to provide classes, workshops, collaborations and performance projects to adults, young people, children, elderly, disabled, disadvantaged and marginalized groups.

Past projects

The Olion Project – August 2012

In partnership with Swansea Metropolitan University ‘Reaching the Heights’ – a European funded initiative. TAN delivered 3 projects – TROY BOYZ, LOVE SONGS & DISCOVER, to engage NEETS, Learning Disabled and Young Carers. The projects were a huge success, working with over 100 young people, achieving TAN’s aims to encourage commitment and reward, nurture self belief and enable personal development.

Intergenerational Project: Time and Tide – July 2012

In Partnership with Swansea Metropolitan University, Neath College, Reaching Wider and Barnardos. A week long Community Performance Project for the young and not so young working with multigenerational participants from a variety of backgrounds.

Working in pairs with at a least a 10 year age gap between partners, participants were led through a creative process of new intergenerational dance work where they were challenged to explore the art of movement and discover new things about themselves and their partner. The workshops led to 2 performances on stage at Swansea Metropolitan University and Neath College.
