The Commissions Programme

Our Commissions Programme is for young graduate, emerging practitioners and mid-career choreographers and aims to develop and support the next generation of dance makers.

Our commissions’ programme aims to support young graduate, emerging practitioners and mid-career choreographers through a £1,000 commission to create a new performance piece ready for touring. Alongside this is free rehearsal space and sharing/performance opportunities. In return, Swindon Dance requires advocacy and it’s logo on all publicity relating to the work when touring, through social media and digital dissemination of the work.

The offer:

  • commission of £1,000 to create a new performance work;
  • use of dance studio space at Swindon Dance to research and develop work;
  • technical support;
  • communication and marketing support, inclusion in brochures, website, and social media activity; and
  • presentation of your work in a dance platform.
