Milton Keynes Dance Theatre

Milton Keynes Dance Theatre is a Dance Education project that provides an organic creative environment for the children of Milton Keynes and the region to develop and perform.

Its mission is to give students the experience of being involved in professional-level theatre productions without needing to head to the major cities. They aim to educate in a friendly, creative and inclusive environment.

Storytelling Through Dance

Dancers have, for centuries, brought stories to life through movement. From facial gestures to the point of a foot, slow movements to more expressive and exaggerated ones are all part of telling the audience what is going on.

It doesn’t matter what the style is or if different genres come together, their ultimate goal is the same. The dancer’s movement becomes the voice that helps to captivate the imagination of the person watching as story develops. Music adds another dimension, the choice of instruments, sound level, beat and rhythm add to the emotion. Deeper stronger sounds create tension while the softer ones mimic the gentle movements of curiosity, sadness or even love.
