Independent Dance – Company Information

How is ID funded?

ID receives funding from Arts Council England as an National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) as part of a consortium with Siobhan Davies Dance, whose building we are based in.

In 2019-20, ID’s portion of this funding is £71,068, which covers most of our core operating costs; salaries of our four part-time staff, office rent and administrative overheads. In addition, we raise funds through trusts and foundations and through individual donations. Our programme exists on an income-generating basis, with earnings from curating and delivering an extensive, international programme of classes, workshops,  events and exchange projects aiming to cover costs.

We welcome donations all year round, and any donations to ID will help us to provide a vibrant, forward-looking programme that is relevant and exciting for today’s artists and audiences.
