About Us

Based in Bromley, at The Churchill Theatre, Magpie Dance is an inclusive contemporary dance company that has carved out a national reputation for its exciting and inspiring approach to inclusive and creative dance. Magpie Dance’s mission is: ‘Unlocking individual potential and ability, to be at the forefront of dance for people with learning disabilities”.

Founded in 1985 by Artistic Director Avril Hitman BEM, Magpie Dance has grown for 30 years from a single inclusive dance session for 45-minutes weekly to an acclaimed organisation delivering high quality dance experiences both nationally and internationally. Magpie Dance’s programmes fall into three strands: participation, performance and training.
