Dance Transports is a programme of continuing professional development (CPD) that began with a vision to bring high-quality CPD to dance artists across Yorkshire by offering opportunities that were local, accessible and affordable.Read More
About Dance Transports
A partnership with independent artist, Danielle Teale in 2017, brought about significant change to the programme and Dance Transports began to adopt many of the principles integral to Danielle Teale’s Ârtists’ Exchange Programme:
- Artists now receive a financial contribution to attendees opposed to paying for professional development.
- Everyone in the room is recognised for their expertise and invited to contribute and lead aspects of the exchange.
- Guest artists and companies are still involved but with an understanding of a careful facilitated approach which gives voice to all artists taking part.
COVID-19 has changed our Dance Transports Programme significantly for 2020/21Â and we have commissioned three artist-led exchanges following an open call-out. These exchanges will take place digitally through online platforms. We are supporting artists to design these events in line with their individual inquiries which means that some have events that you can sign up to, others have an application process and others are producing content to share more widely such as transcribed interviews and soundscapes.
