Dance4 curates the biennial Nottdance Festival, which takes place across the city of Nottingham. Its regional work for children and young people includes U.Dance in the East Midlands and the Centre for Advanced Training.
Founded in 1991, we have reached over 2 million people through residencies, research, training, participation, festivals and touring. Our role in progressing the art form nurtures and champions extraordinary international and UK artists.
Dance4 has a strategic role for dance development across the East Midlands working with a range of partners, venues and individuals to create exciting opportunities to bring dance artists and communities together.
In 2017 Arts Council England announced increased investment for Dance4 as part of its National Portfolio for 2018–2022 that enables Dance4 to realise its international showcasing ambitions and to increase the international reach and connections.
