JADE Fellowship (Part 2)
1 Sep 2009 – 30 Sep 2010

Set up in 2005 for five years, the JADE Fellowship is awarded to a professional dancer coming to the end of his/her career and wishing to transfer their skills to dance education and community work. The scheme is based on the belief that professional dancers have valuable qualities and skills to bring to dance in education.

In May 2008, Siobhan Davies Dance was awarded the fourth JADE Fellowship for dancer Tammy Arjona. The Fellowship is designed to give Tammy experience of delivering education and community dance work across a broad range of ages, groups and contexts – as well as developing her project management skills.
