Studio Sessions is a fixture of Dance Umbrella’s annual festival, connecting national and international industry professionals with UK artists sharing work in progress. Eight informal presentations enable presenters, funders and supporters to see work well before it hits the stage.

Due to the current situation concerning COVID-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Dance Umbrella 2020, which includes Studio Sessions. More information about the festival cancellation can be found here.

Please contact for details about Studio Sessions.
