Dance Base residencies, programmed by Artistic Director, Morag Deyes
Throughout the year Dance Base offer residency opportunities to professional choreographers, companies and individual artists who want to develop their work. The selection is not highly competitive but we will choose artists who we believe will make the best use of the facilities we have built for dance and who may also have a positive impact on the professional dance community. We offer two strands of residency to support your needs.

Exploring residencies are designed to encourage exploration, research, development and experimentation and will typically focus on work in progress. There will be the opportunity share findings to peers and Dance Base visitors and to invite and encourage feedback.

This residency is offered to a choreographer, company or individual who wishes to take a developed idea to the next stage and premiere their work in a theatre or site specific space.

This week-long residency takes place at The Studio On The Green, in Selkirk, the Scottish Borders. The Studio On The Green sits in a wonderful rural location in the small town of Selkirk. Founded in 1989 by Jenna Agate and Trevor Timms and is a custom-built dance studio with sprung hard wood floor and natural light.
