Help support our annual Choreography Award, a tailored package of support for talented Midlands-based artists at an early stage in their choreographic careers.

The Choreography Award is designed to broaden the diversity of artists we are able to support and will help up to 8 artists a year to make work, refine their craft and learn the business of dance.    

Our aim is to support a diverse new generation of artists to build their careers, equipping them to make work that’s exciting and relevant to our young and diverse audiences.

It costs us £23,000 every year to support 8 artists. As a registered charity we rely on the generous support of our funders and people like you to continue our work – so every pound you give today will help, and a regular donation would make a real difference. 

By investing in our Choreography Award today, you can help dance to flourish here in the Midlands, benefiting thousands of people over many years to come.

Here’s where your donation could help:

  • £20 gives an artist 4 professional-level classes with experienced tutors
  • £60 supports an artist with 3 hours of mentoring and advice, tailored to their needs
  • £120 provides an artist with 2 days of creation and rehearsal time in our dance studios
  • £350 gives an artist 1 day of production time in our fully equipped theatre space
  • £500 enables us to provide an Artist Bursary Award
  • £1000+ helps to fund a new commission, investing in an artist to make new work
