Dance Nest & Theatre Nest

Dance Nest  is a DIY masterclass workshop with professional dancers, devised and coordinated in collaboration with RAD trained ballet dancer and teacher, Sarah Hearn.  Hosted by Dance Factory North East.

Dance Nest is a format proven to build community and networks between professional dancers, whilst providing fun and professional training, they have so far been supported by Middlesbrough College, Middlesbrough Council, Dance City, Youth Dance England and Arts Council England.

“Dance Nest has given me the opportunity to create strong professional relationships with a wide range of artists that I would not have otherwise met. We pass on work to each other, work collaboratively and are always happy to give advice and support to one another.” – Sarah Hearn


Theatre Nest launched in January 2015 with theatre practitioners from across the north east meeting at the Liddiard Theatre at Polam Hall, supported through Jabberwocky Jam by Arts Council England.
