Hampshire Dance is hugely disappointed to have been unsuccessful in their application for National Portfolio funding from Arts Council England (ACE) and will cease to be regularly funded by them from April 2012.

As a vibrant and innovative dance agency Hampshire Dance has been consistently praised by Arts Council England for its high-quality youth dance and artist development activity across Hampshire and the south east. They have also highlighted the organisation’s governance and financial management as being of exemplary standard.

Hampshire Dance has had a significant regional and national impact through its groundbreaking projects and the decision to withdraw funding will have a major impact on dance, especially for young people, across the south east.

Peter Taylor, Chair of Hampshire Dance said,
“The trustees and staff of Hampshire Dance have a substantial legacy of twenty years of innovative and exemplary dance development to protect and secure into the future.
We will be working with our other funding partners and stakeholders over the coming months to ensure that Hampshire continues to be an area of rich and vibrant dance activity”
