Freefall Dance Company

In 2002, the seed of an idea for an inclusive community dance company founded on the principles of classical ballet and special education was sown. From this seed, Freefall Dance Company, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s genuinely groundbreaking company for talented dancers with learning disabilities, was born.

Over two decades later and as a result of talent, resilience and a sheer passion for dance, our Freefallers have created an extensive, diverse repertoire, their own model of school and community engagement, and a suite of dance-for-camera films. All of these elements are testament to so many wonderful people simply going above and beyond!
