The initiative is supported by Super Culture.

Rural Touring Dance Initiative

Since its launch in 2015, The Rural Touring Dance Initiative (RTDI) has transformed UK rural dance touring, successfully increasing the quality and quantity of dance touring across the country, to make dance a vital and celebrated part of rural cultural life.

Entering its next phase, the RTDI is launching a new Associate Venue programme, partnering with 9 venues, predominantly in market towns across the UK, to support their dance programming over the next 3 years. The RTDI partners will collaborate with venues to present bold and diverse dance work and to develop new audiences for dance across the UK.
