New dance sector research comes at a key time for West Midlands dance

New research from Arts Council England (ACE) offers a detailed insight into the nature of the dance sector nationally and regionally.

The report Dance mapping: A window on dance 2004-2008 (PDF, 4.16mb) contains a wealth of information ranging from data on levels of investment and audience figures, through to review of the social impact of dance, including a review of research which has investigated the health benefits dance participation.

As noted by ACE in their press release, the research ‘is the most significant compilation of evidenced-based dance research ever undertaken in this country.’

The release of A Window on Dance comes at a key time for West Midlands dance. The region is currently gearing up for an explosion of dance activity in 2010, including International Dance Festival Birmingham 2010 (now with a more regional reach) and British Dance Edition 2010.
