Danza Urbana belongs to the wider E’BAL network – palcoscenici per la danza contemporanea (stages for contemporary dance). Born in 2018 and coordinated by ATER, the E'Bal project aims to build a network in support of contemporary dance, bringing together heterogeneous partners but united in the commitment to implement good practices and tools so that citizens can approach new languages of choreographic and performative experimentation.

Anticorpi is a network of showcases, festivals, and creative residencies operating within the Emilia-Romagna region to support the training and promotion of young dance-makers. Established in 2006 and coordinated by Cantieri Association, it consists of 10 partners which represent a point of reference for the development of dance in the region.
The partners of the network are the following:
Ferrara-Teatro Comunale di Ferrara, Bologna – Associazione Danza Urbana, Modena – Tir Danza, Mondaino (Rimini) – L’arboreto-Teatro Dimora, Parma – Europa Teatri, Ravenna – Cantieri, Santarcangelo (Rimini) – Santarcangelo dei Teatri, Piacenza – Teatro Gioco Vita.
Anticorpi XL is the first Italian network dedicated to young dance-makers. It currently includes 37 presenters from 15 regions and has been one of the most meaningful “best practices” in the Italian scenario for 10 years now; it is a concrete and remarkable example of how the “latest” generation of Italian choreographers can be promoted.
Anticorpi XL is a network of presenters who cooperate in the creation and implementation of specific actions through the networking of resources among the partners and makes use of the Cantieri Association’s organisational and financial coordination. It is a collective journey, enriched by new cultural challenges, also thanks to the 3-year acknowledgement by the Italian Ministry for Cultural Affairs for its “Across-the-board promotional actions – projects for generational turnover,” an acknowledgement that is shared with the cultural organisations Danza Urbana and L’arboreto - Teatro Dimora. These are prime national entities which have perfectly expressed their vocation to networking, training, promotion, development, and practice around an original culture in dance-making and dance research, fostering contemporary culture.
The partners of Anticorpi XL play an important scouting role within their reference region and endorse shared guidelines which include various support tools for artists, such as the supervision of their creative processes, favouring mobility and creating opportunities to disseminate and observe young dance-makers.
