South East Dance makes dance happen – from world class performance to accessible participatory projects.


South East Dance is seeking new Trustees as it enters an exciting phase of its development

South East Dance makes dance happen in places and spaces across the south east of England and beyond, from world-class choreographic creation to accessible participatory projects. We are at an extraordinary point in our evolution as we steer our journey on to a new, ambitious course and we need the right people at our helm to support and guide us in our strategic development at this important time. The Dance Space, our dedicated space for the creation of dance in the heart of the Brighton & Hove, has been granted planning permission and we are now entering a crucial development and fundraising phase for this major project. Meanwhile, we continue to grow and expand our organisation, delivering and enhancing the dance offer locally, regionally and nationally.

• Do you have the right experience to add value to the South East Dance Board?
• Are you the enthusiastic and passionate advocate we need?
• Can you help us build key relationships with stakeholders and make the connections that will contribute to the long-term sustainability of South East Dance?
• Have you got the skills we need to bring to the mix?

If so, please get in touch and find out how you can get involved in the strategic development of South East Dance, a leading organisation in dance development and creative innovation.

We are currently seeking candidates with skills in one or more of the following areas:
• Finance
• Fundraising (corporate/private sector)
• Legal

Expressions of interest
If you are interested in becoming a Trustee of South East Dance, please send your CV and a covering letter outlining your reasons for applying and the skills you can bring to the Board. We would like our Board to reflect the diversity of the communities we work with, so we particularly encourage expressions of interest from disabled people, people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and from young people.

Opportunities for artists

Hip Hop ChoreoLAB: Open Call for Applications

Pavilion Dance South West and South East Dance are working in partnership to increase development and choreographic opportunities for artists working in and influenced by Hip Hop dance.

Applications are now open for the 2015 Hip Hop ChoreoLAB. The lab will be an opportunity for two artists to experiment with ideas and test possibilities with a collaborator of their choice, investigating new work over a week without the pressure of producing a finished piece of work. In addition, the participating artists will take part in the Hip Hop Dance Summit at Pavilion Dance South West in May 2015.

Each artist will receive a budget to cover fees, collaborators and expenses. Producers from both organisations will be present throughout the LAB week offering support, advice and feedback.

How to apply: Full details and an application form can be found at:

Deadline for applications: 9 January 2015. Successful applicants will be informed by 30 January 2015.
Applications for this opportunity are being managed by Pavilion Dance South West.
