Creating dynamic dance through a synthesis of Kathak, live music and contemporary dance.
In 2012 Balbir Singh Dance Company premiered Synchronised, a spectacular large-scale pool-based performance involving over 100 dancers, synchronised swimmers and live musicians. Commissioned by imove, Yorkshire’s cultural programme for London 2012, Synchronised was developed over a three-year period, and its legacy programme continues, featuring ongoing activity including performance and education work around creativity in water.

This year, the company’s performance programme includes an appearance at British Dance Edition, and a partnership with Dance Across the North – a project which will see over 10,000 people across the North of England experience world class dance and music within their local communities.
In addition to being a performer, choreographer and teacher of Kathak, Balbir Singh has worked extensively as a movement director/choreographer on numerous large-scale high profile productions, and in collaboration with other companies. Find out about previous commissions within the company’s archive here.
A programme of education and professional training runs alongside the company’s performance work, which sees Balbir Singh and company dancers work regularly with schools, colleges, professional dance artists, community groups and young people.
