Disabled dancers get grant boost despite arts funding cuts

As hundreds of arts groups see their applications for Arts Council England grants turned down due to cuts in government funding, the Candoco Dance Company has seen their grant increase by 15%.

Stine Nilsen, co-artistic director of the group for disabled and non-disabled dancers said she feels for other bodies losing out but thinks their long-term community work had helped their application.

More than 200 organisations that previously received regular funding have missed out on grants from Arts Council England, which had its budget cut by £100m in October's spending review.
