Summer Residency

Robbie Synge - Douglas - Friday Firsts at Yorkshire Dance © Sara Teresa

What is the residency scheme about?

As part of Yorkshire Dance artist development we are offering artists/companies the opportunity to be in residence in Leeds at Yorkshire Dance. You will have flexible access to the studio, together with use of equipment, support and feedback. Please note Yorkshire Dance currently has no fees to cover expenses, travel or accommodation.

The time in the studio serves two purposes:

  • Research and Development
  • Making Work

Who is it aimed at?

Residencies are open to both Yorkshire and UK based artists, working within contemporary dance practice. Please note that Yorkshire Dance has a strong commitment to regional artists and therefore will be given preference.

Yorkshire Dance is looking for artists who can demonstrate how working at Yorkshire Dance in particular will benefit their practice.

What is the time frame?

Residencies should take place between: 5 June – 30 July 2017

How do I apply?

Please download a residency application form along with the equal opportunities form and submit any supporting documentation with it before the deadline. Please post to:
