Programme Partnerships

Creating a stronger dance sector

Dance is a highly collaborative art-form that transcends borders and boundaries. We engage at home and abroad to forge the relationships, find the opportunities and create the connections that inspire dance artists and our programme.  

We value the role partnership and collaboration plays in the creative process and in promoting engagement with dance. Much of our success to date has been achieved through working in association with others. This is why we will continue to prioritise creating and encouraging connections between people, places and practices, nationally and internationally. 

We work in partnership with a range of artists and organisations to provide training, artist development, opportunities to participate in dance and events that bring artists and communities together around a shared interest in dance.
