The Dance Artists in Residence program is designed specifically for dance artists to have focused time for the creation and development of new works in Banff Centre studios, with support as desired from a faculty team of professional dance dramaturgs.

This program brings a number of dance artists to the Banff campus at the same time to work on their respective projects, while enjoying opportunities for artistic connection and exchange with peers. The residency is intended for artists working in the initial creation phase of a new work, which they will develop over the course of one or two weeks in residence.

What does the program offer?
This residency offers a range of dance spaces depending on participants’ needs and studio availability, and artists will be provided with a basic sound system. As this program focusses on creating and developing ideas and forms of practice, participants will not have access to production spaces. Banff Centre is unable to provide support around production or technical elements.

Artists are expected to be creating work during this residency, however are not expected to give a final performance or showing. Participants will be offered the opportunity to have an open studio showing at the end of their stay, if desired.

Applicants are encouraged to bring their own dramaturgs, however for those unable to bring a collaborating dramaturg, there will be two dance dramaturgs on faculty who will be available to engage as required.

Who should apply?
We invite project proposals from experienced, professional individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies worldwide. Artists at various stages of development are encouraged to apply. Applying companies are limited to eight members. Large requests for technical support may affect the outcome of the adjudication as this residency has minimal resources for technical and production.

*Financial Aid of 100% of the tuition fee and 50% of accommodation is available for this program.

Program Dates: December 5 – 16, 2022
Application Deadline: September 7, 2022
