bbodance Springboard offers independent dance artists and choreographers an affordable workspace to create or develop choreographic work.

Taking place at the new bbodance Headquarters in Battersea during August, successful participants will have full use of the Espinosa Studio for the duration of their residency. There is also the opportunity to take part in a sharing of work and feedback session with all artists involved, enabling them to create connections and network with their peers.

Choosing between a 4 day residency (10am-2pm) or a 1 day intensive (9am-5pm) at a rate of £12.50 p/h, participants are invited to develop their creative practice in state of the art facilities at a freelance-friendly cost.
