Dance Hub Artist Call Out

Dance Hub Birmingham (DHB) is seeking proposals for two exciting new call out opportunities, paving the way for the opening of the city’s new purpose-built dance studio in September 2019 and amplifying the presence of dance in the Digbeth Weekender festival in October 2019.

The new DHB studio will be a major new asset for dance, designed to enhance the rich dance infrastructure of the city region and grow the capacity for artists of all backgrounds to develop, create, learn, and sustain their practice in the city.

In preparation for the official launch, DHB wants to welcome a broad range of artists into the studio over the summer, to develop and exchange new ideas, foster a spirit of collective working, and explore the use of the space in different ways.

About Dance Hub Birmingham (DHB)

Dance Hub Birmingham is an ambitious sector-led initiative to amplify and further develop the region’s position as an international centre of excellence for dance. Supported with strategic investment from Arts Council England, Dance Hub Birmingham builds upon the exceptional existing dance ecology of production, performance, community and learning activities delivered by organisations in the West Midlands dance sector.

The Dance Hub Birmingham studio will be managed by a newly formed Dance Hub Birmingham Community Interest Company (DHB CIC) whose membership initially comprises Birmingham Hippodrome, Birmingham Royal Ballet and DanceXchange – the resident companies of the Hippodrome Campus, which is the location of the new Dance Hub space.

The Dance Hub Steering group, formed in June 2017, will continue to play a vital role in overseeing and helping to shape the future of Dance Hub Birmingham. This Steering Group is comprised of representatives from ACE dance and music, Birmingham City University, Birmingham Hippodrome, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Culture Central, DanceXchange, mac Birmingham, One Dance UK, Sampad and two individual artists, who work in consultation with the city and wider West Midlands dance sector.

Further details, including guidance on how to book the new studio space, will be announced over the summer. The official launch will take place in September 2019.
