Bath Dance awarded BaNES Cultural and Creative Challenge Fund
BaNES Council invest £5,000 into the continued development of dance in Bath and North East Somerset as part of the Cultural & Creative Challenge Fund for Arts Projects.
Bath Dance are delighted to announce that it was awarded £5000 in November 2016 towards their Love dance stage project, building on the success of recent years.
Bath Dance will re-introduce the ‘Pop Up Love Dance Stage’ in collaboration with Keynsham Music Festival encouraging future engagement of participants and new audiences. The stage will offer performance opportunities for local dance groups to perform, host professional workshops for all ages and showcase an interactive presentation of a professional work by aKa Dance.
The stage will have it’s own tent, giving it a real presence at the festival and will provide exciting contemporary dance as well as other styles from local communities, adding to the festival’s cultural and participatory offer. aKa Dance will also return later in year to develop on what they create initially as a legacy project with local dancers.
Bath Dance will be doing a call out later in the year for local practitioners, youth dance companies and performance groups of all dance styles to be part of this fantastic opportunity.
