Expressions showcases the exciting work of talented disabled dancers from across the UK. The only event of its kind in Yorkshire, Expressions takes place over three relaxed shows, with diverse performances from professional and community groups.
We are proud to co-commission TIN Arts’ new work Invisible Kisses which will première at Expressions, alongside Anjali Dance Company who return to Leeds with two short dance pieces, Unicorn and The Reflection. Northern Ballet’s In Motion and Ability dancers will join other performers from Leeds to present their own trailblazing work.

Land’s End to John O’Groats (LEJOG)
Two Deaf men have captured the imagination of the Deaf community by setting out on a walk from John O’Groats to Lands End to raise money to support treatment for Deaf people with mental health problems.
Mark Hodgson and Daniel Dorney are walking to raise £10,000 for Deaf4Deaf and SignHealth to support their work to give Deaf people services like counselling in BSL. They are accompanied by support driver Christopher Potts.
At the time of writing, they have already raised £6,480, which suggests the final sum they raise may be more than their target sum.
Mark and Daniel have set up a Just Giving page, and you can donate here.
