This pilot project, managed by Dance4 on behalf of National Dance Network, was a collaboration between UKTI (funded through the GREAT Campaign), Arts Council England, the British Council with additional support from Wales Arts International and Creative Scotland to promote the export potential of UK contemporary dance by creating a series of performances, events and showcases at Tanzmesse 2016, Europe’s most important dance trade event.  The event will take place in Dusseldorf, Germany from Wednesday 31 August – Saturday 3 September.

The project aims to raise the profile of the UK’s dance sector to an international business audience with the aim of increasing the potential for export opportunities. It will also promote the rich cultural offer in the UK to attract tourists (supported by Visit Britain) as well as students who might want to study arts subjects in the UK (supported by British Council).
