Communicating Dance website

360º – Building Strategies for Communication in Contemporary Dance was a cooperation project amongst 6 European dancehouses, 5 of them EDN members, developed between September 2016 and December 2017 co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

The project aimed to address the complexity and the specific challenges that communicating contemporary dance entails assisting dance professionals to develop their thinking, skills and practices in the field with all key stakeholders in their career.

Over the course of one year, it allowed a series of best-practice sharing meetings with the staff the project parnters, international communication experts and many dance practitioners at different career stages with diverse practices.

The knowledge generated has been organized and shared as an online toolkit of free consultation:
