We are so sad to hear of the death of Jamie Watton, CEO/Artistic Director of South East Dance.
He was a fabulous dancer, creative choreographer and a visionary dance leader.
Jamie was a lovely lovely man and a great friend to us here at PDSW over a long time. He had a twinkle in his eye and a kind word for everyone. He was insightful and fun to work with on the National Dance Network, and a great champion for dance in London and the South East. He collaborated with us on the Digital Futures event in 2011, helped us shortlist for the U.Dance regional platform in 2013 and supported a cross-fertilisation of producing work between ourselves, South East Dance and Greenwich Dance over the years.
He will be much missed and our hearts go out to his family, friends and colleagues at South East Dance and across the wider dance sector.
