Artist Opportunities

Artists are at the heart of our organisation and we are fully committed to supporting them in many ways. From curating a diverse array of shows every season from national and international performers, to providing financial backing for choreographers, DanceEast is continually searching for ways to help artists, both emerging and established, achieve their potential.


Expressions of interest are now open for DanceEast’s Summer Makerspace.

Open to all artists at any career stage, this relaxed space offer provides freedom to work on projects, research new ideas, rehearse, or time for creative exploration with no outcomes at all!

Deadline: Monday 3 June | 5.00pm

Every year we present a diverse programme of world-class performances that include national and international dance artists and companies, early career artists and young people.

Residencies and Production Weeks

We have developed a reputation as a fantastic place to create new work; our first-class facilities, supportive environment and peaceful surroundings are perfect for artists looking to immerse themselves in their choreographic process. We provide residencies in our studios and technology suite and production weeks in our theatre to a whole range of artists at different career stages.


We offer cash commissions to support artists and companies to realise specific projects. We expect our contribution to support artists to apply for and raise funds from other sources.
