Join Dance Massive artists, members of the Dance Massive consortium, our international guests and our national and regional partners for breakfast where we aim to provoke frank and informative conversations and a little bit of networking too.
Who are the breakfasts for?
Come and have a coffee, croissant and chat with us if you are an artist, international, national or regional presenter; dance manager, producer, tour coordinator or government funder. We’ll be talking about the production, touring and presentation of dance and we want to hear your thoughts and get your input.
