About Dance

Our priorities

We will be establishing a more encompassing platform for dance in Wales.

We will support the ambition, values and ability of Diversions to commission choreographers of international calibre. We aim to further stabilise key companies and organisations including revenue funding of clients.

Working alongside service providers in the sector will support their financial growth and enhance our ability to provide:

  • professional support and opportunities,
  • in-career training and development,
  • community and education provision,
  • growth in the marketing of dance and mobilisation of its audiences

Arts Council of Wales will work with UWIC to establish a post graduate diploma with a particular focus on evolving community dance practice whilst providing work placements with providers based in Wales.

Through our support network to dance venues we will help to:

  • develop programmes,
  • build audiences
  • enhance outreach activity
  • encourage links to community dance providers.

We also aim to promote the access to dance and disability practice as well as dance provision through the medium of Welsh.
