Rubicon Dance Company is a brand-new professional dance company, formed by a trusted Welsh social arts organisation, Rubicon Dance, in direct response to the crushing effect of the pandemic on talented dancers from Wales, all now graduating into an arts sector blighted by the impact of COVID-19.
Creating a new company for graduates has been one of the most exciting projects Rubicon has embarked on. Wales produces amazing dancers, but they seldom have the opportunity to join dance companies based in Wales. The post-pandemic landscape has only served to amplify this longstanding inequity which means that there is a real risk that dancers at the beginning of their careers leave the industry before they even start.We will lose a generation of Welsh talent unless we do something. Therefore, in a first for Wales, Rubicon’s response to this situation has been to create Rubicon Dance CompanyRubicon Dance Company brings together 8 of the most exciting dancers in Wales and will cater for the huge appetite for high-quality dance that audiences feel invited to see.
