A Love Letter to Dance

At Dance in Devon, we believe that dance can be for everyone. Life is better when we move together and we are proud that we can make this happen for all kinds of people in all kinds of ways. We know that the simple joy of making and sharing dances really can change lives. We are inspired by the people we meet through our dance projects, from toddlers to grandparents, and by the hours and hours of hard work our artists put in to making dance happen. With each of our projects we see just how joyful and powerful dance can be.

BUT Dance in Devon is under threat. We receive no regular government or local authority funding to develop or sustain our organisation or dancers in Devon – and this work is the foundation that underpins our projects. It is clear that we need to find new ways to pay for it. We are determined to fight for our charity and we think that with our strong vision for happier and healthier communities and our vibrant artist network, we can adapt and change. But we can’t do it alone.

In early July we will be launching a fundraising campaign. To keep on leaping forward we need your support. Please donate and shout from the rooftops;

Long live dance, long live Dance In Devon.
