The BBC Performing Arts Fund are looking for applications from groups working across all ages and genres, and that get their local community’s toes tapping. From flamenco to hip hop; from ballroom to morris dancing; groups the length and breadth of the UK are enthusiastic and passionate about dance and they want to support and encourage their development.
Grants awarded through this scheme will allow groups to carry out training, attract new audiences, encourage new members and raise their profile in their communities. The BBC Performing Arts Fund wants to encourage groups to take on more challenging projects through commissions and encouraging collaboration with professional artists and other local organisations.
Ultimately, the Fund wants to encourage a wider audience for, and participation in, the exciting UK community dance sector.
The total amount awarded under the Scheme could be up to £200,000. The maximum grant given to any grant winner will be £5,000 and the minimum grant given to any grant winner will be £500.
