Arts Council England have awarded a grant to Bristol Dance Futures - a consortia of South West arts organisations and practitioners - to develop the city’s dance offer. The group is working together to grow investment in dance, and includes Emily Williams (Theatre Bristol), Rhiannon Jones (Trinity Community Arts), Kieran Swann (Arnolfini), Nic Young (Circomedia), Helen Cole (In Between Time) and independents Gabbie Cooke, Deepraj Singh Katy Noakes and Lauren Scholey. Deborah Baddoo, Dance Futures Producer will lead this development and develop Bristol’s regional and national profile as home for dance.

Through a two-year funded project, the partners will work together to develop a wide range of dance activity across Bristol. This will include the announcement of three focused Dance Hubs to support Dance & Health, Young People and Audience. There will also the Dance Connect programme to enable dancers to take on residencies in a range of cross-sector settings in 2020-2022.
