Leeds Dance Partnership – Programme Manager
Leeds Dance Partnership has a vision for Leeds to become an international centre for dance – a dancing city that will provide leadership in the North for the development of the art form locally, nationally and internationally. A number of organisations and independent artists from across the region have come together to make this vision a reality, including, amongst others, Northern Ballet, Yorkshire Dance, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Leeds Beckett University, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, representatives from the Independent Dance Sector and West Yorkshire Playhouse.
As Programme Manager you will work closely with partner organisations to research, develop, manage and support programmes, commissions and events which support the vision for Leeds Dance Partnership.
You will be responsible for agreed areas of an Ambition for Excellence programme funded by Arts Council England which includes commissioning, capacity building, diversity, talent and audience development.
You will work with a wide range of stakeholders at all levels of engagement, to project manage initiatives in learning and engagement, place making, research and network development and the role dance plays in the health, well-being and physical activity agenda.
