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

VIA is passionate about the performing arts, and this is evident in their recent achievements. In July 2023, they clinched first place in the Freestyle Inclusive Dance Category at the Sun Rae Oxfordshire Dance Competition in July. And in September 2022, they lit up The Stroud Theatre Festival stage. Their annual performances at the Gloucester Carnival during the summer season are a local highlight. VIA's talents have also shone on national broadcasts, including appearances on 'The Strictly' live on BBC's The One Show and 'A Life Without Downs.'
