“Swindon Dance understands the importance of listening to artists and helping them to trial bold and new ideas in a safe and supportive environment. What I have been impressed with over the years is their ability to expertly respond to the needs of professional dance artists, acknowledging their tailor made input will benefit both artists, audience and the wider community”.
