This national celebration of dance will showcase the cutting-edge creativity, artistry, and talent that makes the dance sector so vibrant and essential. Following the success of Dance Passion 2019, and after the most difficult year for arts organisations and performers alike, it is hugely positive to see the return of the Dance Season to the BBC. This is particularly with initiatives that highlight its ongoing commitment to nurturing young talents, and attracting creative ideas from every corner of the dance scene in the UK.
The opportunities for funding are open to dance companies, independent artists, dancers and choreographers based in the UK from both the professional and non-professional sectors, along with those based in dance education and dance medicine/science.
Dance Passion is a collaboration between BBC Arts and One Dance UK and is supported by funding from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants programme. Applications for the Open Call are opening soon, and full details on how to apply can be found on One Dance UK's website.
