Membership Profile

Who can join the network?


EDN gives priority to applications from organisations based in countries where the network is not yet present.

To be able to join the network, dance organisations should have the following profile:

  • 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.
