We are Spiltmilk.

Makers of fun-fuelled, smart, glow giving dance
Proudly playful
Frankly entertaining
Considered and considerate

We tailor-make shows for cosy spaces
And get a kick out of connecting people
We revamp pop culture
And rejoice in the common ground we all share

Led by Co-Directors Sarah and Adele, and in collaboration with a superhero team of artists and specialists, Spiltmilk has been making moves for almost 20 years.
Dancing with people of all ages
Meeting people all over the country
Making dance relevant and joyful

We dance, we tell stories, we joke
We invite, we welcome, we include

Cheniece Warner

Company Associate

We have worked with Cheniece since 2020. We met when she was a participant on It’s Your Move in Barnet and realised she was really skilled, an absolute ray of sunshine and was also graduating at a really difficult time, mid-pandemic. Since then we have worked together to support her to transition into a career in the arts, as well as employing her wide-ranging skills (photography, poetry, social media) to support our development.
