From July to September, The Place launches Summer House, a new festival of learning, sharing and performance. Artists and enthusiasts of all ages and abilities will come together to form a community, sharing in the dance created and performed at The Place.
The BBC Performing Arts Fund is launching two new schemes in support of dance, Community Dance and Dance Fellowships. The fund, a BBC charity committed to developing new performing arts talent in the UK, will be awarding up to £350,000 in grants through the two schemes. This is the first time the charity has supported dance groups and individuals.
