Dance4´s international Centre for Choreography

A unique factory building with a rich history has been re-purposed into an exemplar creative facility of cultural significance to the growth of Nottingham as a city as a significant place in the national, creative and cultural economy.

Dance4’s international Centre for Choreography is an exemplar creative facility from which Dance4 invests in artists’ practice and delivers specialist support and space for the research, production and distribution of new choreographic work.

The centre supports research and creative collaboration between people, spaces, places and countries. It hosts international and UK artists alongside the public as participants and participants, makers and commentators in order to create extraordinary experiences for all.

The new centre will enable new work to be created in Nottingham to be distributed from Nottingham to local, national and international markets.

The centre provides a home to Dance4’s Centre for Advanced Training in dance and a creative industries hub for learning and skills programmes, knowledge exchange and workforce development.
