Jo Frater, Founder and Artistic Director of Confidance, has devoted her life's work to inclusive dance. From childhood, her close relationship with her brother (who happens to have a learning disability) caused her to question society’s prejudices. As an established dancer, teacher and choreographer Jo was curious as to how she could develop her dance practice to include those with learning disabilities. She discovered a myriad of questions on how to teach, train, and make work for dancers with learning disabilities.

ConfiCo are Confidance’s first professional dance company, and have taught her as much as she has taught them. In this video you will see there debut appearance with their scratch piece ‘Joint’.
Confidance, lead by Founder and Artistic Director Jo Frater, is an organisation that shares high quality dance work with integrity, curiosity and inclusion at it's heart. Working in schools, community settings and theatres Confidance makes dance and performance for, with and by dancers with and without learning disabilities.

Confidance has recently undertaken a research project that redefines dance, following the belief that we are all artists, we discovered the creative potential of children with complex disabilities who co-choreographed a piece with Confidance. Pushing the boundaries of what we consider dance to be... we create, educate and perform.

Confidance’s new professional dance company ConfiCo, are delighted to be performing at TEDx Folkestone. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
