Reside Dance


Founded in 2016 and led by Jennifer Christine Stokes, Reside Dance aims to bring individuals and communities together by developing connections to places and others through dance.

With a special focus on promoting and celebrating cultural diversity, Reside Dance aims to become Reading’s first dance company to bring its residents side by side to celebrate their individual and collective cultures within site-specific places.

Drawing upon techniques and processes from dance theatre, social choreography and somatic practice, Reside Dance aims to strengthen Reading’s dance offering by creating innovative, high quality and accessible performances, workshops and programmes that widen dance audiences through an exploration of issues prevalent to Reading life.

Reside Dance’s work consists of three strands; Research, Community-Based Performance and Training and Education.
