Rubicon is the community dance development organisation for Cardiff and Newport and was one of the first of its kind in the UK. It was launched in 1976, as the Cardiff Community Dance Project based at the Sherman Theatre.

By 1983 the organisation had grown sufficiently to move to its own dance centre in Adamsdown, Cardiff. The project was renamed Rubicon Dance, providing dance for people of all ages and abilities in a variety of community settings and whose aim is to provide consistent access to high quality dance activities within a policy of equal opportunity and open access.

Over the years the programme has continued to expand to include the full-time preliminary dance training course (1986), many international exchanges (1994), the first UK community dance apprenticeship scheme (1995), the Cardiff dance development programme (1996), the Young Dancer programme (1998) and the Newport Dance Development programme (2001). In 2006 attendance figures reached the highest ever with nearly 85,000 people engaged in dance practice at Rubicon and we celebrated our 30th Birthday.

In 2008 Rubicon was awarded the prestigious Beacon Award, by the Arts Council of Wales in recognition of our commitment and dedication to dance.
