history

Corali was founded by a social service worker, Virginia Moffat, in a Southwark day centre in 1989. 

Initially a casual dance group, the name Corali is an anagram of the first letters of the original company members’ names.

In 1991, the company received its first grant and set up independently in an office at a local community centre. 

Sarah Archdeacon joined the company as a volunteer in 1991 and become Artistic Director in 1993.
