Applications are now open for the 2024 studio Residency Program at the Primrose Potter Australian Ballet Centre.

Providing a much-needed rehearsal space for mid-career or established artist/collectives to further develop their craft, the residency provides for studio space from 8 April to 17 May while the Australian Ballet is performing in Sydney.

The 161 sqm studio space has a sprung floor, ballet barres, a mirrored wall, sound system and piano. Successful applicants will also receive an $18,000 grant to support them over the residency period.

The Australian Ballet’s Artistic Director David Hallberg says: “Consistent studio space can be costly, hard to come by and presents a real hurdle for many artists when creating new work. That’s why we’re proud to support the dance community with our Residency Program that provides a world-class rehearsal space to help further develop their practice.”

“This program has supported Australia’s rich and vibrant dance ecosystem for the past two years and plays a significant role in expanding the variety of works that audiences can enjoy,” Hallberg adds.

Launched in 2022, previous successful recipients are choreographer and former Artistic Director of Danceworks, Sandra Parker, and Artistic Director of the Northern Territory Dance Company, Gary Lang.

To be eligible, applicants must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident, and have a minimum of 15 years’ experience in a dance choreographic or body-based practice. Applications will be assessed by a panel comprising of Hallberg, internationally renowned choreographer Bebe Miller, multi-award-winning choreographer Stephanie Lake and CEO and Artistic Director of Dancehouse, Josh Wright.

Applications closeon December 11, 2023.
