Where Talent Inspires
Who we are
Founded in 2005, Actual Size Dance Company is a place for BA Dance students at The University of Surrey, GSA to develop their personal expression through choreographic opportunities.
Our dance sessions celebrate individuality and embrace primitive movement encouraging dancers to discover their own way of moving.
In 2020, co-artistic directors Adina Dumitrascu and Jasmine Staunton continue the company’s mission and explore the connection between the body and emotions. The company engages in contemporary and is heavily influenced by Irish dance, Ballroom and Latin and hip-hop.
'This year we are working towards pushing the company's boundaries and comfort zones; to tap into our emotions and let them drive the movement of our bodies.'
The company invite guest artists to lead workshops during the year to guide our dancers to discover and further develop their technique, diversity as well as physical strength.
