Surf the Wave supports ATMA Dance

Surf the Wave is a dance development project of national significance, taking place over three-years, aiming to change how dance is toured in the UK.


During Phase One, ATMA’s Artistic Director Mayuri Boonham and Associate Producer Ceri Brierley were invited to take part in the Artist as Entrepreneur programme. Across two two-day intensives we joined with other dance artists and companies to discuss challenges, exchange and reflect, learn from some inspiring case studies and meet a range of programmers from across the South East of England. We chose to focus on this region as we have fewer existing venue relationships than elsewhere.


Following the intensives we have been successful in our application for Seed Funding, which will enable us to test a new consortium of venues interested in developing audiences for family dance work. We’re delighted to be working with Surf the Wave on this initiative, alongside our venue partners: Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Maidenhead; South Hill Park, Bracknell; Corn Exchange, Newbury and The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury.
