DanceEast works with a range of artists and dance companies across the UK and internationally. One of the ways we do this is through the DanceEast Associate Artists scheme which is a bespoke way of working – individually tailoring packages to meet the needs of each person.

I am particularly excited about the Associate Artists programme. It is not just about the artists that are offered a place on the programme, it is also about all the encounters we make through the selection process.  So many exciting projects and partnerships have evolved from callouts to our previous Associate Artist programme, so we are genuinely looking forward to see what is next for DanceEast as we focus our search on women (including trans women) and non-binary people.
