Enriching lives through dance
Our Commissions Programme aims to support the next generation of professional dance makers. The outcome of the commission is varied and will be decided on an individual basis. Previously artists have produced pieces for touring, screen dance and accessible classes.
Each commission includes a £1,000 commission to create a new performance piece. Applicants are invited from graduates, young practitioners and mid-career artists. The programme gives choreographers time and space to develop and grow their creativity whilst producing new works for touring.
Choreographers receiving a commission are required to promote Swindon Dance on all publicity relating to the finished piece. The scheme commences from 1st April each year. Unfortunately due to the impact of the Coronavirus on activities our commissions programme is not currently open for 2021 applications – it will open again soon.

The aim of this programme is to give dancers and artists access to high-quality yoga, free of charge that focuses on their unique needs and emotions. We hope it will become a resource that will not only help to underpin an artist’s technical skills but also support whole body wellness and health.
