Thank you! Update on the Jamie Watton Fund

We wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you who have donated to the fund set up in memory of our late Artistic Director and CEO, Jamie Watton who passed away last year. To date, the fund has received donations totalling over £14,500, including a weighty contribution from gift aid and, along with Jamie’s family, we have been overwhelmed by your generosity.

Jamie was passionate about investing in programmes that supported gifted young talent to realise their potential by accessing high quality technique and creative dance training.  Through this fund, we are happy to be able to support this year’s Young People’s Contemporary Dance Classes which invites applications from 13 – 16 year olds to train with some of the south east’s leading professional dancers including Ceyda Tanc, Yael Flexer, Katie Dale-Everett and Nic Sandiland.

"Thank you it was an incredible experience I will remember for life. It has possibly changed the future course of my life."
