Who we are
Touchdown Dance was founded in 1986 by Steve Paxton and Anne Kilcoyne at Dartington College of Arts in Totnes, Devon. Katy Dymoke took over in 1994 and moved the charity and company to the North West of England.
We started working with the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) in 1986. We had our first production in 1992, and moved our operation to the North West in 1994.
Touchdown Dance became company in residence at Waterside Arts Centre in Sale in 2004. From this base we have established a solid track record locally and regionally, and grown our profile both nationally and internationally.
At this point we started working with children, and running many more productions and community workshops over the next few years.
