South Asian Dance Development Programme
A two-year programme for eight developing choreographers and dance makers whose practice is rooted in South Asian Dance.
The deadline for applications for the South Asian Dance Development Programme has now passed. We will respond to all applicants by Thursday 17 August 2023.
We are offering eight developing choreographers and dance makers whose practice is rooted in South Asian Dance, access to a two-year development programme. We mean South Asian Dance in the broadest sense from Kathak, to Odissi, to Bollywood, and Bhangra. We will hold a space for these artists to re-examine their choreographic process and extend their practice through intensive weekends of creative exchange, peer-led learning, mentoring, and support.
Artists on this programme will be selected by open call where we ask developing choreographers and dance makers to tell us about their choreographic experience to date, describe what they would like to explore further, and what impact a programme like this would have on their practice.

This programme has been developed in partnership with Akademi and was inspired by discussions with Sadler’s Wells’ South Asian Dance Advisory Panel in 2022.
