Akademi is committed to nurturing South Asian dance talent in the UK. One of the ways we do this is by supporting artists’ projects through mentoring and advice, marketing expertise, bursaries and commissions. The nature of the project can vary from choreographic exploration to event production; from live performance to digital or from topical work to research.
