Dancers Emerging Bursary Scheme | Group Residency

Dancers Emerging Bursary Scheme | Group Residency

Monday 9 - Friday 13 October

During this week our 2023/24 Dancers Emerging Bursary Scheme artists, Catriona O’Connor, Hannah Draper, Laura Mathana and Rho McGuire, will join their mentor Solène Weinachter in the studio for their first week together.

Every year, Dance Base offers a group of dancers and physical performers a place on our Dancers Emerging Bursary Scheme. The scheme includes mentoring from experienced dance artists, free professional classes and workshops at Dance Base, free selected community classes, up to two week-long group residencies at Dance Base and free studio space.

This Residency Week marks the start of the 2023/24 DEBS members year together with Dance Base. During the year Soléne will support the artists to find out what a sustainable practice as a dance artist means – practically, physically, creatively and politically. Soléne’s aim is to support the DEBS in discovering / working with what is alive for them (both as artists and as humans) and making that be the focus of their professional choices.
