Professionals & Artist Development


The Place runs an array of professional development projects and programmes for independent dance artists.

The Artist Development department is intrinsically linked with the Theatre department and most of the artists whose work appears on the Robin Howard Dance Theatre stage have come into contact with our artist development work in one way or another.

Projects range from supporting professional dancers in their everyday practice with daily professional class to a bespoke associate artist programme to open application research and development projects and workshops. A wide range of artists are supported from recent graduates to artists who have been working for over thirty years, all of whom work in very varied genres.
