Northern Connections aims to nurture and profile some of the most promising emerging choreographers in the North of England. The programme has already supported several dance makers to create and platform new work, with many going on to successfully further develop and tour it, reaching new audiences.
The programme has been refined to emphasise and support aspects of research and development, and to maximise opportunities for creative exchange, mentoring and producer support including an informal platform and hosted post-show discussion with an audience.
Applications to Northern Connections are now closed for 2019 and will re-open in 2020 for the 2021 programme
Northern Connections is a biannual professional artist development programme developed by Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD) and delivered in partnership with Spin Arts and Yorkshire Dance. It is funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
