Evolve Dance Platform

Cascade provides an annual performance opportunity for dancers ( youth & adult), companies, schools, colleges, universities and community dance groups in Kent. The platform was founded in 2009 and has since provided a much needed opportunity for local dancers and choreographers of all ages and abilities to showcase their work.

Every year the platform takes a different focus connecting to local, regional and/or national events ( e.g Big Dance) alongside a rich and diverse programme of dance performance in Kent.

The platform is held at and in partnership with West Kent College who support and provide the event with their state of the art performance space and audience seating of 270. To find out about West Kent College FE Performing Arts Courses click here.


Our dance platform returns on Saturday 8th December welcoming schools, colleges, youth companies, adult and community dance groups to share their work.

In partnership with West Kent College Performing Arts, the dance platform is held in the MAC Theatre at West Kent College in Tonbridge, Kent.

The platform is a chance to share work from across a range of genres, with an aim to offer a rich and diverse programme of dance performance in Kent.
