Welcome to Dance Services!
We know how challenging it is to be a freelancer and run your own business, write funding applications, fund raise, market your work, project manage and all the myriad jobs needed to produce a show.
Dance Services was initially support by Arts Council England through a 'Developing Your Creative Practice' grant. After extensive research with the freelance community and additional support from the Linbury Trust, we have set up a team of Associates offering bespoke services to freelancers working in the dance sector.
Dance Services is a one-stop shop offering you affordable access to a group of highly experienced professionals who can work with you on a one-to-one basis for all your business support needs, be it a one off application or mentoring session or to manage a project.
Our Associates charge hourly, daily or project based rates to ensure we can meet your budget. We aim to be transparent in our pricing and affordable. There are no membership fees, just a commitment to providing you with sound, professional knowledge and experience.
Whatever your needs, we have an expert team of colleagues to provide guidance and support.
Meet our Directors and our cohort of professional Associates. They all bring vast knowledge in their areas of expertise as well as in-depth knowledge of the dance sector. Find an Associate that meets your needs and we will organise an initial free consultation before you sign up to a session.
"I worked with Assis Carreiro as a One to One Mentor as I was undertaking an ambitious project to create a 10 Year Vision for Dance in Middlesbrough and to advocate for dance and dance artists. As this was my first attempt at a strategic project working with Assis was valuable to set manageable goals and her feedback helped me to think about how to communicate effectively with key stakeholders. I would highly recommend working with Assis for Bespoke One to One Mentoring as a supportive and deeply knowledgeable mentor."
