Dance Transports Artist Support Sessions

Call Out: Yorkshire Dance
Application Deadlines:
Fri 24 April for sessions taking place in May
Wed 20 May for sessions taking place in June
Wed 24 June for sessions taking place in July

Yorkshire Dance are offering a limited number of artist support sessions to dance artists living and working in the North of England. Artists will connect digitally for a paid mentoring/ coaching or artist advisory session, either with a member of the Yorkshire Dance team, or artist to artist.

You might want to use the time to discuss an artistic project you are developing or to think about how to adapt existing work or explore new ideas.

Sessions will last one hour and you will receive £100 towards your time in preparing and taking part.

How to apply

Please email us at tanyasteinhauser@yorkshiredance.com with a few lines about yourself, stating where you are based, a brief proposal of what you would like to explore in the session and what you hope to get out of it. 

If you are applying for an artist to artist session, please also tell us who you would like to connect with as a mentor and why you have selected them.

Alternatively you can apply by emailing us a short video or audio file with the same information.

We have a limited number of support sessions available each month and in the event that we are over-subscribed, we will prioritise artists who we think can benefit most from our support, whilst also considering the diversity of those who apply. 

  • Deadline 1: Fri 24 April for sessions taking place in May
  • Deadline 2: Wed 20 May for sessions taking place in June
  • Deadline 3: Wed 24 June for sessions taking place in July

Successful artists will be notified a week after the deadline.  You will be put in touch with the most appropriate member of the YD team or when applying for an artist to artist support session, a member of the YD team will connect with your chosen mentor to check their availability.
