Let's GROOVE! 

Groove (formerly Horizons) is an artist development programme for aspiring musicians and dancers. Wherever you are in your creative journey, and wherever you want to go, Groove is a place to come together, be creative, feel inspired, and express yourself. 

As a Groove artist, you decide what you would like to do - create new work, build confidence, perform on stage, lead a workshop, record an album, present a radio show, collaborate with others - wherever you want to go, we'll help you get there!  

Groove Offers: 

  • One-to-one creative mentoring with an experienced Paragon practitioner, paired to suit you creative ambitions.
  • Access to group music and dance workshops designed to build your confidence and connect you with other emerging artists
  • The chance to be part of a group of emerging artists who meet regularly to connect, collaborate, and share ideas.
  • Performance and recording opportunities to get your work out there to audiences.
  • Support and guidance to access funding, development opportunities, and collaborations with artists organisations to further expand your creative journey.
