Participate - the newspaper for participatory dance

Participate, the newspaper for dance in participatory settings, is published by People Dancing.

Launched in 2014, Participate reports on the individuals and communities that love to dance, throwing a light on why people dance and what dance means to them.

The newspaper is available online and in paper format and you can receive it as part of any of our membership schemes. Alternatively, you can contact Rosie Frances, Programme Coordinator, at rosie@communitydance.org.uk to get your paper copy.

Participate is published twice a year, in June and December.
