Dancehouse General Appeal


"Dancehouse is a home of independent movers … it's got their back … it's under their feet … and carries them forward.It is radar, signal, transmitter and receiver. It is a homeland for the independent, the bold, the brave, the rare, the fragile."

- Hellen Sky, co-founder of Dancehouse

This June 2020, Dancehouse welcomes individual dance artists to our studios for the first time since 20 March. With a thoughtful Covidsafe plan in place, we are offering 108 sessions in our studios to help artists keep dancing.  It’s one person, one studio right now; it is a start in the right direction. 
As an organisation, Dancehouse faces both challenges and incredible opportunities. We are limited by COVID-19 in what we can offer artists, our capacity to earn income, how we plan, and when to safely welcome audiences.
This end of financial year request is a little different with 100% percent going directly to artists.

Donations Dancehouse receives by 30 June 2020 will be used to commission dance artists and thinkers to contribute to Dancehouse Diary #12: What Now? This free, multi-volume virtual edition with staged releases across 2020 is edited by Philipa Rothfield and Angela Conquet and invites dance artists to reflect on the multi-layered realities we currently face.
For the dance community, Dancehouse Diary #12: What Now? promises an archive of collective memories and speculative futures from dance artists and thinkers at a time of physical distance and global disruption. 

What Now? is a moment of transformation.
