Rubix Dance was set up and created in 2005 by Clare Marie Palethorpe with the desire to educate and create through the art form of dance in educational, youth, community, private and professional based settings.


Clare performed professionally for many years as dancer, vocalist and presenter within UK theatre tours, touring companies Internatioanlly and also TV work. Her extensive performing career ran parallel to her teaching and choreographical work and set her in strong stead to work as a freelance dance artist for the last 20 years.


Clare’s work has always shown variety and this stems from working within contemporary dance, musical theatre, cabaret and commercial sectors. Allowing scope for creativity, and an all round wealth of knowledge within various areas of the dance sector.
