Dance City and Newcastle College are opening their studios and offering them, free of charge to professional dance artists, throughout the summer, week commencing 31 July – week commencing 28 August as part of the Creative Summer Residency Programme 2023.

The Creative Summer Residency programme exists to support dance artists regionally and nationally in developing single or collaborative ideas involving choreography, dance and movement. 

People are invited to develop ideas and movement for up to one week in one of our purpose-built studios. Dance City’s aim is to offer at least half of the Creative Summer studio space to artists based in the North East of England and the other half to artists working outside of the region.  

Autumn 2023 sees the return of Dance Edits, a dance platform for artists to present new work in the theatre at Dance City, Newcastle. There is also the opportunity to present your work that you develop during your Creative Summer residency at this platform. We invite you to consider this and detail on the Expression of Interest that you would like more information about this opportunity.

Please note the deadline for completed EOIs is 12 noon on Tuesday 13 June 2023. Residencies will be confirmed, and artists/companies informed by the Friday 16 June 2023.
