Founded in 2007 by Steve Johnstone, and based in the South West and London, Off The Map Dance Company’s core principle is in delivering high quality creative work to regional audiences. The company targets areas that may not have access and reaches out by offering a range of possible ways to engage with contemporary dance through live performances, classes and workshops. Making the choreographic styles, ideas and themes at the centre.
In 2014, Off The Map have been commissioned by companies such as 3rd Stage Dance Company and Springs Dance Company to create live work to be toured across the UK. Activities in the South West includes creating, teaching and participating with GingerFred Studios apprentice group Rise (2014), Strode College dancers (2014), and Strictly Come Langport (winner, 2013).
