NEW Dance Network for Cumbria

November 22, 2015

DARE DANCE has been offered a Cultural Investment Contract with Cumbria County Council to establish a new dance network for Cumbria.

They will create a current database of practitioners, offer mentoring and training and match practitioners, venues and funders to improve the dance offer across the county.

They are working closely with partners across the region and want to create opportunities for Cumbria to have a strong voice in regional dance development, in particular the new initiative Dance Network: NW.

Two dates in Cumbria have been arranged for practitioners to meet, dance and discuss their priorities for dance in the county and the region.

• Saturday 5th December 1.30-3.00pm at Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal.
• Saturday 12th December 5.00-6.30 at University of Cumbria, Brampton Road Campus, Stanwix, Carlisle.

There will also be opportunity to join in company class and attend the performance of 'The Search' at the Stanwix Theatre on Saturday 12th December.
