About the Hub

Our mission is to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms, to be a truly inclusive Society for all and encourage diversity in our dance community. We will work towards this vision by embedding diversity and inclusion into all that we do. We aim to have an inclusive community that values merit, openness, fairness and transparency.
