We have a new look!

Our professional classes program has expanded significantly, developed in collaboration with organisations and Freelance Artists. Recognising the need for a fresh look, we consulted with local dance artists to create a brand-new design.

The three words—BRUM, PRO, and CLASS—are equally emphasised, reflecting our commitment to Birmingham and the West Midlands, community engagement in creative practice, and the training/sharing of practices.

  • BRUM is showing our ambition to remain anchored in Birmingham and the West Midlands for the future vision of our programme
  • PRO in relation to the community’s invested interest in creative practice and the provision of professional development opportunities
  • finally CLASS relates to the training and sharing of practice between dancers guest artists and workshop leaders.

Through recent inclusivity and accessibility research, we’ve been able to redefine who Brum Pro Class is for and this is the working definition we came up with: “Brum Pro Class is for all regional dance artists with and aspiring to an established practice and who have an invested interest in the professional dance sector and its development”

While maintaining the iconic orange colour, our new logo incorporates dynamic textures, symbolizing the Collective’s constant evolution.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on our exciting logo update! Share your feedback with us.
