Dance City supports dance artists regionally, nationally and internationally in developing single or collaborative ideas involving choreography, dance and movement. Throughout the month of June 2021, Dance City has joined forces with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in a partnership providing three one-week residency opportunities.

BALTIC is currently in a four year partnership with Siobhan Davies Dance, London, called CONTINUOUS seeking to advance the creation and presentation of experimental independent contemporary dance within visual arts contexts. BALTIC is delighted to collaborate with Dance City to provide rehearsal opportunities for dance artists based in the North East, and to further support the practice in our region.

The Level 1 space at BALTIC will be offered as rehearsal space, free of charge to three different artists/companies, on weeks commencing 7, 14 and 21 June 2021.

You are invited to develop ideas and work for one week (Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm) in BALTIC’s performance space. In addition to this, Dance City is offering a £500 contribution to each artist/company per residency, on receipt of an invoice to Dance City.

We actively encourage applications from artists who self-identify as Black, Asian, ethnically diverse, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, neurodiverse, disabled and mature (10 years plus of professional practice).

These residencies are exclusively for artists who are from, who studied at undergraduate level or above, or who are based in the North East of England. The lead applicant must show their connections and commitment to developing the North East dance sector. Aerial work cannot be supported.
