DAYA believes dance has the power to transform, educate and help people to see the word in a new light. This is achieved by creating initiatives/outreach projects that take professional dancers into our community to work with those who cannot access dance to help them realize the positive potential within their self. Through dance we provide structure, discipline, focus and a powerful channel of expression for people who feel isolated, alienated and powerless. Contemporary dance training and performance of the highest quality has the power to achieve this, but only when that potential is set free as a result of focused and highly focused artistic endeavour. No hiding places, no short-cuts, no excuses.
