Dance Artists in Residence 2021

Performing Arts | In-Person

Program Information

Overview

The Dance Artist in Residence program is offered specifically for dance artists and companies of all genres to have focused time for the creation and development of new works. The residency is designed for artists in the creation phase of new works, with minimal in-house technical support in Banff Centre’s studio spaces.

This program is designed to bring a number of dance companies to Banff Centre’s campus at the same time, to work on their respective projects and enjoy the opportunity for artistic connection and exchange. Participants will have opportunities to share works in progress with other visiting dance artists during their visit.

 

What does the program offer?

This residency offers a range of dance studio spaces depending on participants' needs and availability. Artists will be provided with basic technical support, but will not have access to theatre production spaces. More information about our facilities can be found here.

Artists are expected to be creating work during this residency, but are not expected to give a final performance or showing. Participants are encouraged to share their work through informal showings, however this is not required.

Who should apply?

We invite project proposals from individual artists, artistic collectives, and organizations. Artists at various stages of practice are encouraged to apply.

As we re-open campus and welcome artists back to programming in a safe and mindful way, we have made the difficult decision to restrict recruitment for on-campus programs to those currently residing in Canada.  We continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to the future relaxation of travel measures that will allow us to welcome international artists once again.
