he Work Room & Barrowland Ballet are seeking to support two choreographers or dance artists at an early stage of their career. This new initiative is part of Creative Scotland’s Youth Arts Bursaries programme, funded by the Scottish Government to help talented young people recognising the challenges being faced through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bursaries will provide emerging choreographers and dance artists, aged 18 – 24 years with paid time and the wrap-around support from both organisations, to instigate and develop their own creative projects. The bursaries have been named in honour of Rosina Bonsu who died in 2020, to mark her incredible influence on dance in Scotland. Rosina was an inspired dance artist, choreographer and educator who generously nurtured young artists throughout her career. You can read our tribute to her here.

Each bursary will be for 6 months. The format will be flexible to accommodate other work or personal commitments, but could be delivered 2 days a week, or intensive blocks, or equivalent. Given the particular expertise of Barrowland Ballet, it is anticipated that the artists projects (or one of the projects) will have a focus on work with children & young people, and/ or embedding a socially-engaged approach to participatory dance making, and/or dance for camera.
