Dance Fellowships

Dance Fellowships

The Dance Fellowships will support talented individuals through the early stages of their dance careers, helping to establish themselves in the professional world through bespoke Fellowship placements within dance organisations.

Fellowships will fall into one of three categories: Performer, Choreographer and Producer, and will offer an opportunity for motivated individuals to work under the guidance of experienced mentors to develop their skills, showcase their work and experience the reality of working in the UK’s professional, diverse and creative dance environment.

Rather than awarding grants directly to individuals themselves, we are looking for applications from dance companies, organisations, venues and festivals from across the UK to host a Fellow.

This grant is now closed.
