It was set up in 2015 as Groundwork Pro by freelance artist's: Joanna Young, Deborah Light, Jessie Brett, Beth Powelsland and Chloe Loftus to respond to the needs of the local professional dance ecology.  

 

Over the years the programme's core tîm members have changed as freelancers independent practices grow, shift and change. over the years artists such as Lara Ward, Zosia Jo, Elan Elidyr, Jodi Ann Nicholson, Sophie Lorimer, Indigo Tarran and Saoirsa Anton have looked after and shaped the collective.

Groundwork Collective's mission is to connect and nourish freelance dance and movement artists as well as to make space that is inclusive and inviting for people to keep moving their bodies, whether they consider themselves professional or not. 

We support, sustain and inspire professional dance artists through opportunities to delve into different dance practices in classes and workshops, mentoring opportunities, spaces to play, create and share creative ideas through residencies and scratch events and more!

 

Creating inclusive and inviting spaces for people to keep moving their bodies without judgement is important to us because we recognise the undeniable impact it has on individual's wellbeing and community connection. 

Our yearly program's are funded by the Arts Council of Wales, and have additional support from Chapter Arts and NDCWales.
