Echo Echo has a strong commitment to developing dance as an accessible artform maintaining a busy dance education and outreach programme for people of all ages and abilities, and working closely with Northern Ireland's only Dance Degree programme at University of Ulster, and working in partnership with a wide range organisations in the community, education and arts sectors throughout the island.
