Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW) is seeking committed individuals, between the ages of 18 – 25 and who are passionate about arts and culture, to join our Charity Board of Trustees to bring new energy and ideas to shape our future.

Pavilion Dance South West is a registered charity (1111641) dedicated to transforming communities through dance.

We run dance programmes promoting and supporting the sector across the South West and the wider UK. In our Bournemouth-based venue we present live dance performances from some of the most exciting and innovative companies around and run more than 40 dance classes and other workshops a week. We host the AUB Dance Degree which turns five in 2020 between Monday-Wednesday each week of term-time.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we had to close our doors and find alternative ways to support our sector and communities. We are committed to continue to work hard to create Covid-safe ways of bringing dance to our communities, both in person and digitally, whilst we manage this pandemic. We have a Covid Secure plan for our building and have the ‘We’re Good To Go’ certification to show this. We’ve been open for some creative use since 1 September and will reintroduce live events as and when we can. Two developments as a result of Covid that we’ll continue to explore into the future will be the curation of a bespoke digital programme and increasing the amount of interdisciplinary work in our programme – thinking across boundaries.

We’re looking for committed individuals, between the ages of 18 – 25, to complement the skills of our existing and highly valued board members. We welcome board members from a range of backgrounds, knowledge and skills so that we have as diverse a Board as possible.
