Bilqis Hijjas, Rimbun Dahan Dance Program Director, will be on sabbatical from August 2016 to July 2017. No special assistance will be provided for dance residencies during this period. However, the dance studio at Rimbun Dahan will still be available for use for resident artists or the local arts community.

- Use of the dance studio at Rimbun Dahan, which has a sprung wooden floor and music equipment (see images below).
- Networking contacts with the local dance community.
- Escorted visits to local dance performances and events
- Simple production assistance for a final showing.
- Organisation to give workshops to the local dance community.
Exact terms are decided on a case-by-case basis.
