ADAS: Associate Dance Artist Scheme
The scheme provides an Associate Dance Artist with an award of £1,000 to undertake an individual professional development programme, and to deliver a project or event as part of Hampshire Dance’s programme. The Associate Artist must be a Hampshire-based dance practitioner committed to developing their career.
The scheme suits artists who work in any dance style and can demonstrate their commitment to developing their particular field of dance practice eg: as a performer, choreographer, teacher or dance manager. It would be suitable for an artist early in their career, or could benefit a more experienced artist.
Selection is made by Hampshire County Council and Dance Up and is assessed on how clearly the application demonstrates the benefit of the scheme to their own professional development and to dance development in Hampshire.
The scheme runs from October to July each year and the Associate Dance Artist is managed by Dance Up's Programme Manager.
THE SCHEME IS NOW CLOSED FOR 2013/14 APPLICATIONS
