March Dance is back in 2023!

March Dance (@marchdancesydney) is back in 2023! March Dance is seeking applications from artists for residencies and projects. March Dance is a project initiated by the Independent Dance Alliance (IDA) a collaboration between Critical Path, DirtyFeet and ReadyMade Works. The 2023 festival will be led by Critical Path and DirtyFeet, who have joined forces with other companies and organisations to support artists’ participation in this month-long dance festival, celebrating the culture of independent dance in Sydney.

In its 5th year, March Dance 2023 will bring together the diversity of ongoing independent dance practice in Sydney. They provide focus and a context for diverse forms of independent dance to reach city audiences. If you are an independent artist or organisation with a performance, residency, workshop, class, talk or other event happening in March, apply to be part of March Dance 2023!

Space and support for dance artists to test their ideas or develop new work, gain experience, and develop and maintain professional skills. This year with their partners March Dance is offering In-Kind Space Residencies at City of Sydney venues, FORM Dance Projects, Sydney Dance Company, Dance Makers Collective, Academy of Music and Performing Arts and Australian College of Physical Education. If you are an independent artist or group with a project at any stage of development, apply for a residency.

March Dance is also offering a Critical Path First Nations Mini-Bursary ($1000) and a March Dance Mini-Bursary ($1000). Funds can be used to cover any costs associated with your activities, such as, artist fees, materials and equipment, travel, collaborators or mentors, and documentation including film and photography. If you are an independent artist or group, apply for a mini-bursary in addition to your project or residency.
