A few stories from the latest and greatest press releases that have hit our inbox over the last few days/weeks.


The festival that just will not quit is back again kicking off on July 19 for a month (runs until 15 August). Based in Vienna, Austria this event is a little bit different. As well as the usual mix of performances of all stripes from new and old companies alike there are a massive number of workshops to take part in, far too many to list here.

Beginners to professional dancers are catered for but make sure you book an appropriate level otherwise you could be in for a frustrating time.

Most of the workshops take place at an old military base in Vienna city centre. Performances take place in surrounding venues so the whole thing is very compact and easy to access.

For booking information check out their website. Workshop info embedded below.

Yorkshire Dance

Yorkshire Dance (YD), one of the UK's NDAs, has been on the wrong end of some funding cuts by ACE for a while but the tide may be turning with the announcement of a new project called 'Lift'. The project, supported by ACE funding, will allow YD to fund two associate artists over the long term to create new work.

In addition to that there will be the mysteriously monikered "14" who will be mentored through seminars and workshops on the finer points of running a dance company.

To apply just hit up the link below and send them an application. You have until June 29 to comply.
