- Be a not-for-profit organisation, legally established in Europe, with the professional development of contemporary dance as a core mission.
- Be a home for dance stakeholders – an artist and/or dance development organisation promoting and supporting the professional independent dance field.
- Lead both an ongoing audience engagement programme and an artistic development programme (for example either through presentation, residencies, lectures, workshops, training, etc.).
- Facilitate access to a diversity of contemporary dance aesthetics and practices both by professionals and the general public.
