The Associate Dance Artist Scheme is part of the Hampshire County Council Dance Bursary Scheme, delivered in partnership with Dance Up.
Hampshire County Council will no longer be running the Dance Bursary Scheme beyond the current year 2013/14.
To maximise funding available for the future of dance in the County, The Point and Dance Up are being funded by Hampshire County Council to develop new ways of supporting young people in the region through a programme of projects and activities starting in Autumn 2014.
Zoie Golding, Artistic Director, founded FuzzyLogic Male Youth Dance Company in 2000 and due to its continued national success founded ZoieLogic, the professional all male dance company in 2010.
Zoie’s work offers a multi-layered approach to working with the company through their professional, youth and educational strands and develops strong partnerships and audiences from the grass roots up bringing a shift in the current understanding of male dance and challenging the aesthetic of male culture in the public eye.
Her work to date has been seen by over 33,000 young people across the UK and is growing fast within the industry.
Over the last 13 years Zoie has also produced over 250 events in the UK and across the world including Australia, Dubai, Germany, South Africa and Japan involving some 30,000 young people through her role as Rock Challenge, Producer.
‘It is such a privilege to become an Associate Artist of Dance Up and I am looking forward to developing my artistic voice throughout the year. Having the opportunity to enrich myself will have a great impact on the development of my work.’ Zoie Golding
