Support for artists

Swindon Dance, enriching lives through dance

Our Professional Artist Programme aims to support young to mid-career independent professional artists, choreographers, and producers at various stages in their career development and reflect the different genre in today’s diverse dance ecology. 

Space for artists

Alongside this programme, we offer our dance studios free to artists, choreographers and companies for research and development and/or rehearsals. We have a number of studios and a studio theatre.
