Bridging the mainstream and the experimental, our bold approach and powerful collaborations create distinctive performances and far-reaching learning experiences. We celebrate different ways of seeing, of being and of making art, putting us at the forefront of conversation around dance and disability.

The company, founded in 1991 by Celeste Dandeker-Arnold OBE and Adam Benjamin, collaborates with some of the industry’s most renowned choreographers and artists. We create performance work that is presented at prestigious venues and festivals in the UK and internationally.

In 2018, Candoco created a sensation when it became the first contemporary dance company to appear on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, performing to over 10 million people. More recently, the company ran a 2-week residential dance training intensive for young disabled and non-disabled dancers supported by fashion retailer ASOS.  In autumn 2019, the company premiered a new work, Hot Mess, by choreographer Theo Clinkard at Warwick Arts Centre, and completed a tour of the Caucasus.
