SSDC is a small scale urban contemporary performance dance company which is based in Southampton, under the direction of Laura Heda PGCE, Ba (Hons) FDI. 


The company's mission is to create high quality performances by exploring the combination

of urban dance with contemporary styles and choreographic devices.


The company consists of 5 dancers, and we often collaborate

with other artists, whether this be in dance, film, music,

photography to inform the richness of our work.


This broad platform for creativity is ours to explore

and we hope to invite our audience members

and students to join us here.
