Wales Dance Consortium
Chaired by Sybil Crouch (Taliesin Arts Centre), this forum is currently engaged in an extensive, three-year period of development (funded by the Arts Council of Wales), focusing on four elements:
- Dance Buddy
An innovative programme that places artist-development hand-in-hand with audience-development, this scheme pairs up independent dance artists with a theatre or arts centre in co-mentoring partnership – the ultimate aim being an increase in the quantity and quality of Wales-made work available for audiences.
- Children & families
Investing in co-productions of Wales-made work for children and families, as well as sourcing productions from across the border and beyond.
Researching and presenting excellent productions at small- and mid-scale from outside Wales and overseas.
- Marketing & audience development
Working with Creu Cymru members to raise the bar in reaching and engaging with audiences for dance in Wales.
Alongside these four distinct strands, the Wales Dance Consortium is also closely connected to the Dance Shorts initiative, which places accessible Wales-made dance in public spaces, and works to connect up with other sector initiatives, such as Coreo Cymru, the Creative Producer for dance in Wales.
