SHIFT 2022


SHIFT is an exciting career development opportunity for Hip Hop Artists funded by ZooNation and Dance Career Development

Successful applicants will receive:

  • a grant of up to £2000 to be used towards retraining or exploring a different career
  • be part of a DCD’s Beyond Dance Mentoring Programme, powered by Moving Ahead, designed to give dance artists the opportunity to create
    connections and networks outside of the dance sector
  • one to one Personal and Career Development Coaching sessions
  • access to ZooNation and DCD’s expertise and people
  • peer-to-peer support.

How to apply

All applicants must have at least 6 years’ experience of performing Hip Hop work in a professional and paid capacity within the UK. Applicants must demonstrate that they have been professionally contracted as a Hip Hop dancer consistently for at least a period of 6 years. Teaching experience will be recognised but the onus for applicant is to demonstrate (through their CV) that they have been primarily employed as a dancer (across a variety of context including, but not limited to, stage, tv, film, festivals, exhibition battles and wins etc…) in a performance capacity.

We are not inviting applications from Hip Hop dance artists wishing to develop their artistic work/choreographic skills. This is not an artist development scheme.

This programme is for Hip Hop artists wishing to invest time on personal development, work with a mentor and explore a different career.
