Professional Development

One of our main aims is to grow and sustain the dance ecology across the Midlands. We create the environment with training and work opportunities for ambitious and talented dance artists to flourish here.

Attracting and retaining artists

“Our Professional Development helps the region to attract and retain artists, by providing them with bespoke support outside of our Associate Artist Scheme.

We help them to create their work in a number of ways. For example, we provide professional classes with our partners in Birmingham Dance Network and subsidised studio and production space.
