Cornwall Dance Partnership

In order for dance to thrive in Cornwall’s schools and our wider community of children and young people, there needs to be a carefully planned, long-term development programme, driven by a clear strategy that has general sign-up across the education and dance sector in Cornwall. That is what Cornwall Dance Partnership provides.

Since 2012, Dance Republic 2 has been involved in a process of debate and consultation around dance for children and young people with Falmouth University, Cornwall Sports Partnership, KEAP, Hall for Cornwall, independent dance artists and teachers, and Headteachers and teachers from Cornwall schools. The process began with a ‘sandpit’ enquiry event at Falmouth University in November 2012 entitled “Would it matter if our children Stopped Dancing?” . This event featured presentations by the choreographer Siobhan Davies CBE, Professor Mick Waters, the former Director of Curriculum at QCA and Marie McCluskey MBE, Director of Swindon dance,. This extraordinary day, attended by headteachers, teachers and dance professionals from all over Cornwall and beyond triggered fascinating discussion and debate, leading us to collaborate with Falmouth University, Cornwall Sports Partnership, KEAP, Hall for Cornwall and RIO to launch Cornwall Dance Partnership.

The project now delivers dance opportunities to Primary schools across Cornwall. These include regular contact with local dance practitioners, workshops from local, national and international dance artists, opportunities for professional development and training, and much more.
