The Talent Hub is a professional development programme for gifted dance artists with a learning disability or autism.
It is led by TIN Arts, in partnership with Yorkshire Dance and Inclusion North.
It is funded by the Arts Council and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
After auditions over the summer 2018, ten dance artists have been selected for the programme.
Each dance artist will receive individualised support, wherever they live, and they will come together several times a year for intensive periods of training and rehearsal.
In 2019 they will start working with choreographer Theo Clinkard.
They will design and create a piece of dance that will premiere at the end of 2019 and then go on tour.
Inclusion North are working with each dancer to support them to reach their full potential.
We are also supporting the Talent Hub programme with learning around co-production and helping the dance sector to be more accessible to artists with a learning disability or autism.
