VIA is a Community Inclusive Intergenerational Dance Company which consists of wheelchair users, learning disabled dancers and non disabled dancers.

VIA was started over 10 years ago and still contains some original members who love coming to the inclusive group. Karen Perrins started working with VIA many years ago and is now proud to be their Choreographer and Artistic Director, Karen has a passion for Inclusive Dance coupled with a desire to promote inclusivity within the dance and arts sector. VIA is about everyone being able to participate in dance and enjoy being part of a group.

VIA love to perform and this year they have excelled themselves, from performing “The Strictly” live on the BBC The One Show, to winning Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts and performing at Unity Festival at the Millennium centre in Cardiff.

VIA just love to perform and enjoy themselves!

We are also lucky to have a wonderful band of volunteers who help support VIA both in the weekly sessions and at performances.


We meet on Mondays at Milestones School in Gloucester from 5.30 – 7pm, if you are interested in finding out more or would like an application form please contact Karen Perrins on / 01452 863855
