In January 2014 Dance in Devon began a year long project, funded by the Big Lottery, the Dulverton Fund and Public Health Development Fund to work in six residential homes in Devon. The following practitioners have been working in homes across Devon to delivery this project:
Sue Smith and Tamsin Bone: Newton Abbot
Ruth Bell and Sarah Farrow-Jones: Bovey Tracey
Susanna Oxenham and Katie Kelsey: Dawlish
Jules Laville and Sarah Farrow-Jones: Ivybridge
Rosie Perdikeas: Tavistock
Sue Way: Crediton
The practitioners have been developing a programme of dance activities giving older people in residential care access to a quality arts experience as participants and audiences.
