We’re delighted to announce that Dancers’ Career Development will be hosting an Inspiration Evening as part of The Jam Festival 2024.  


5th March 2024

The evening event includes an awesome line-up of artists performing, speaking and sharing films and stories. Artists confirmed to date include Bellatrix, Jamaal O’Driscoll, Niquelle LaTouche and Max Revell aka Silk Boogie, with Luke Lentes facilitating a panel discussion. 

The Jam Festival takes place annually at Swindon Dance. An incredible, international celebration of underground dance, the festival comprises a packed week of workshops with top-tier street dancers, battles and other events. 2024 Programme highlights include New Kidz On The Block, Let There Be Lite and West Country Clash. The festival takes place 2-6 April. 

DCD’s Inspiration evening, on Tuesday 2 April (the opening evening of the festival), is open to both festival attendees and any dancer wishing to find out more about DCD, learn from and network with fellow artists. 

Alongside inspiring performances, a panel of speakers will discuss their careers in dance, hip-hop and beyond, and how they’ve forged their own unique paths. The evening will also be an opportunity for dancers to learn more about DCD, our grants for dancers, other forms of support and to talk informally with members of staff. 

In partnership with The Jam Festival and Swindon Dance, the Inspiration Evening forms part of DCD’s 50th Anniversary programme. It will be a relaxed social event and is free for dancers to attend. 

 We look forward to releasing further details very soon! Keep an eye on our socials and website, or sign up to our enewsletter for updates.
