We are Devon's dance development agency. We celebrate, enhance and encourage the dance community of Devon by creating opportunities to watch, to perform, to create and to participate in dance. Dance in Devon aims to help dance be as good as it can possibly be throughout Devon by being the first point of contact for all those involved in dance in Devon, supporting existing and emerging professional dance artists and companies, and developing more opportunities for everyone!
Dance as an artform is well placed to target multiple agendas including addressing specific health agendas such as obesity, healthy heart and improving general well being, combating social isolation and improving the quality of life of those individuals taking part. Dance in Devon has an excellent track record in delivering an innovative range of dance projects including: World Dance Day, dance for older people, youth dance, young people at risk, artist development and early years.
Last year Dance in Devon provided high quality dance activities to 5177 participants. Typical comments from participants include: "It certainly lifts me and is something I look forward to. It is so very different from other activities available." Richard, participant "Dance has had an impact on the people around me, like my friend who wants to give up smoking so he can keep up with me when we practise!" Teenage male participant
We work with office interns, event volunteers, reviewers, photographers, and film makers. We offer placements at University level for a commitment of at least 1 day per week for 3 months, so that you can make a real contribution and get a better understanding of how a dance development agency works. It is important to us that both parties benefit from a meaningful placement. We always welcome volunteers with an interest in dance to volunteer at events, workshops and performances.
