Residency

Community dance practice encompasses creating dance with community and creating community with dance.

This selection of residency projects are available for Made in BC’s network of regional presenters.

 

Program Description

Community dance practice encompasses both creating dance with community, and creating community through dance. To help facilitate this activity Made in BC’S Community Engaged Dance Residencies pair regional communities with professional dance artists for intensive periods of learning and artistic collaboration. Artists and diverse community participants explore artistic ideas, build relationships and learn new skills. Residencies differ from project to project and community to community, sometimes providing artists time and space to work on artistic projects if scheduling allows.

For more information on residencies – what they are, why they’re important to the dance and arts communities, and what kinds of residencies there are – download our Residencies Information PDF on the Artist ProD page.
