Exim Dance is a Plymouth based, award winning CIC known for our vibrant approach to making dance accessible to all. Exim works predominantly in Plymouth’s deprived communities, focusing on providing high quality dance wellbeing opportunities.
Our mission is to improve people’s lives through dance. What we deliver is diverse and accessible. Our vision is to help create a world where underrepresented groups no longer exist and are seen as equal and integral to their community! We are passionate about using dance, and breaking down the ideological barriers surrounding it, in order to support vulnerable people. Our services promote improved mental and physical health and a reduction in loneliness, particularly within marginalised groups.
Our premises provide our service users with a safe non-judgemental environment to express themselves in, where they can develop their skills and confidence. Somewhere the community can come together and create!
Our work centres around our core value that anyone who wants to do something can do it. No matter their background or whether they are disabled. We support those on low income by offering our services for free. We seek to unite communities without barriers.
Exim plays a vital role in supporting Plymouth’s cultural and community scene. We do this through our own work and through working in cross-sector partnerships with others at a local, regional and national level.
We champion community cohesion. The company works both as a youth referral & social prescribing service.
