Join South West Dance Artists Network (SWDAN) and PDSW as we bring a desperately needed CPD weekend for professional Dance Artists in the South West.

The Artist Recovery Plan will take place digitally on 19th-20th September – comprising four 1.5 hour workshops in Technique, Choreography, Online Presence and Fitness & Wellbeing.

All workshops will be of a professional level but are open to all who would like to take part.

This weekend will offer four paid opportunities to professional artists in the South West. We would like to encourage participants to join in for the CPD opportunity and in support of the facilitators who may have endured hardship during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
