Trustees

Thank you for your interest in being a Trustee of South East Dance as we launch our activities in The Dance Space – Brighton & Hove’s new home for dance, and the city’s first purpose built dance house.

Charlotte Spencer's Walking Stories at Our City Dances 2021

We are delighted to be looking for Trustees at such an exciting time in our development. Our vision for The Dance Space is a place that is welcoming, accessible and safe for everybody, a civic and community building with creativity at its heart. A place that starts from the assumption that everyone is creative and that does not place value judgements on the nature of that creativity or how it is expressed. 

Cath James, Artistic Director and Rachel Gibson, Executive Director 

 

This is a time of development for the Board as in addition to the recruitment of new Trustees, the current Chair John Struthers will be stepping down after five successful years, including overseeing the transition to becoming a building-based organisation. We are therefore also currently recruiting for a new Chair. 

 

“I have really enjoyed being Chair of South East Dance and seeing The Dance Space become a reality. The opening of The Dance Space in July will amplify all that South East Dance does to work with communities, support artists and showcase dance that offers insights into and reflections on the world we live in. I can’t think of a more exciting time to be joining South East Dance as Chair.”

John Struthers - Chair

 

“It has been a real privilege to have been a Trustee of South East Dance these last 10 years and to play a part in creating a new dance space, a home for dance, in the heart of Brighton. I am proud that each year South East Dance has challenged, inspired and grown its reach to animate and innovate dance across the South East, and encourage people from all walks of life to engage with dance on their own terms. At the heart of this wonderful work is supporting dance artists from across the region to make and show their work”.

Christine D’Cruz – Trustee
