SLiDE was co-founded in 2013 by Gemma Coldicott and Anita Wadsworth following extensive research into the community dance provision in Croydon. Significant gaps were identified and in particular the research showed a lack of opportunities for disabled people to access dance.
Between them Anita and Gemma have over 25 years of dance experience including choreographing and facilitating dance. They have worked for organisation such as Stopgap Dance, Royal Academy of Dance, Urdang and the Brit School.
