The Dance Network Association is a dance development organisation based in Essex to support the development of dance across schools & community settings.

The association runs two non-audition County Youth Dance Companies for children age 7+, which allow members to train, create and rehearse new dance works with professional dance artists whilst meeting other young people with a passion for dance.
