Article19 has confirmed that Chisenhale Dance Space in London and Anjali Dance Company based in Oxfordshire will lose their Arts Council England (ACE) funding next year if their respective appeals against the decision are unsuccessful.
Chisenhale Dance Space have provided dance classes, workshops, residencies and other activities and support services in London for the past 25 years, according to their website. They declined further comment until the appeals process is complete.
Anjali Dance Company was formed in 1993. All of the company's dancers have learning disabilities, the overriding principal of the company being that "...disability is no barrier to creativity." The company also undertakes education and outreach work and they have toured nationally. Although the company did confirm the decision made by ACE their General Manager could not immediately be reached for comment.
Our source also told us that Robert Hylton Urban Classicism, based in London, will have their funding cut. The company is currently on holiday until January 7th so we cannot confirm this but a message on the company's website does say that an up and coming audition and tour has been postponed "due to recent Arts Council England funding decisions."
ACE have told Article19 that 12 dance related companies will lose their funding, pending an appeal, and 8 will be added to their RFO Portfolio. ACE have declined to release any further details on the funding decisions.
