Education and Community Engagement Programmes

The ECPs of the Acosta Dance Foundation focus on introducing students to the rich dance legacy of Cuba while enhancing their understanding of movement vocabulary, music rhythms, and dance traditions. The programmes are designed in collaboration with local schools, organisations, and Woolwich Works to provide accessible opportunities for students to engage in world-class dance activities. The overarching goal is to create a dancer in every home, sparking curiosity, creativity, and an enduring appreciation for dance.
