Sector Development

Patricia Verity Suarez, a Middlesbrough based Movement Director working in collaboration with Amy Swalwell, TeesDance and Middlesbrough Council has undertaken a research project to understand the current dance infrastructure and provide recommendations for the future.

This research project is one of the elements of Patricia’s Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grant. It is important to note that the resources and funds were limited and for that reason this project has focused only on Middlesbrough, not the wider Tees Valley and looked mainly at the provision for professional dance artists.

It has been produced in consultation with dance artists, TeesDance, Middlesbrough Council, Dance City, and Moving Art Management coming together to realise the full potential of what dance can achieve for Middlesbrough.
